In August 2012 a second screen was added, which seats 40 persons. It now operates as the Movie Loft.

Although it is an “upstairs house”, access to the auditorium on the second floor is ADA-compliant with an elevator available. The space is a former club function room with a dance floor.

When did this open?

I think it opened early this year, but the film organization which runs it dates back awhile. The basic admission currently is $9, but members of the film organization get a discount, as do senior citizens.

This cinema is currently part of the Opera in Cinemas network which features performances from various European opera houses. The other 2 cinemas in MA in the network are the Loring Hall in Hingham and the Capawock on Martha’s Vineyard island.

The second screen is not in the same location, though. It is a couple of blocks away and should probably be considered a separate theatre. The second screen is known as Film Haven while this original screen will be called the Movie Loft.

By the way, the address for the second screen is 11 Pleasant Street.
