Sparking Creativity, Building Community, Celebrating our History
Sometimes the most difficult situations give spark to the most extraordinary things!
None of us could have imagined a year like 2020. For over a century, the Cameo Cinema has been a constant pillar of light for our community. We have weathered the storm through world wars, recessions and now a global pandemic. We are certainly not giving up now! We know that by working together we can not only maintain our beloved Cameo but help her grow and become even more vital. Cameo Cinema FAQ

Our goal is to raise the needed funds to maintain the Cameo as a community asset.

Science on Screen
We just completed our third year as a Grant participant in the Coolidge Corner Theatre's Science on Screen®, which was designed in partnership with the Alfred P Sloan Foundation to enhance film and scientific literacy. Our Grant allows us to creatively pair screenings of classic, cult, science fiction, and documentary films with lively presentations by experts from the world of science and technology.
Kid-Friendly Events and Workshops
What’s better than seeing kids' faces light up as they experience a virtual-reality journey into space or visit with giraffes in their natural habitat via our live-streamed “Zoomfari"? How about the thrill of building a robot during Science on Screen week or creating shadow puppets for a spooky stop-motion video for Halloween? Your generous donations help educate and excite kids’ minds through these interactive arts experiences offered by the Cameo Cinema.
Exclusive pre-release screenings with the Director and Producer are a hallmark of the Cameo Arts programs. This affords movie buffs a rare opportunity to see 'behind the camera' as we explore the creative process of bringing script to screen
