Up Rt 28 East was The Dennisport Cinema (or the more quaintly put: “Cinema at Dennisport”).
My neighbor’s mother was the manager and he, the projectionist (he worked all over the Cape; a union thing). In 1979, she hired my friend and I as ushers (my first real job).
Ironically, on sunny days, I would get a phone call from my projectionist friend to come see a show for free; as he had to run it regardless of attendance. I lived there year ‘round, so missing a “beach day” was no big deal. I saw many a movie there for free; while mildly “chemically altered” and alone in the dark and utterly deserted theater.

Those were the good old days on Cape Cod. Loved the “rainy day ” matinees!

I believe Cinema 28 is now a t-shirt/souvenir emporium.

there was an abandoned school bus in the woods just behind the theatre. My friends and I would play in it if the show let out early and our ride(s) back to Harwich had not arrived yet. Often, that was more fun than the feature.
