Following the success of last year’s public screening of Gloucester-based film, Captains Courageous (1937), the Cape Ann Museum is partnering with Cape Ann Community Cinema to take art outside with a free screening of the award-winning movie, CODA (2021), at the Cape Ann Museum Green.

CODA, which stands for child of deaf adults, tells the story of Ruby Rossi and her family’s struggling fishing business. The only hearing person in her home, Ruby discovers a passion for singing that makes her choose between supporting her family and following her dreams. Partially filmed in Gloucester, this screening is presented in conjunction with CAM’s summer exhibition, The Legacy of the Family-Owned Fishing Vessel.

The Museum is honored to open the evening with remarks from CODA’s director, Sian Heder, at 7:15 pm. The film will start at 8:15 pm and will conclude by 10:00 pm. Attendees are invited to be on-site as early as 6:00 pm to reserve their spots and bring their own picnic to enjoy before the screening.

All parking will be at O’Maley Middle School with a shuttle. On-site parking is reserved for those with accessibility requirements. Local residents are encouraged, where possible, to walk or ride their bike. Attendance is free, but reservations are required.
