Capawock Theatre returns

VINEYARD HAVEN, MA — After being shuttered for two years, the nearly hundred year old Capawock Theatre has resumed normal operations.

It was a sight unseen for the last two years on Main street, Vineyard Haven: the easy conversation amongst friends standing outside the Capawock theatre after a movie, bathed in the yellow light of the old-fashioned building with green and red trim.

The re-opening of the movie theatre on Wednesday night was ample reason to celebrate. Downtown residents delighted in walking to the movies again instead of driving. Business owners revelled in seeing life on the streets after 9 p.m.

All rejoiced in the return of the theatre whose distinctive quirkiness was not lost in the new paint and upholstery. Few cared what movie was playing, so much as there was one.
