The Foundation

The newly-renovated Nantucket Dreamland Theater.

The Nantucket Dreamland Foundation is dedicated to enriching the cultural and intellectual life of Nantucket by providing year-round films, educational programs, and a venue for activities that engage Nantucket in the evolving world of digital entertainment and education in one of America’s oldest theaters.

Much more than just a movie theater, the Dreamland presents year-round films, educational programs and world-class entertainment while providing a venue for community activities.

Located in the heart of downtown Nantucket, the Dreamland is in the process of becoming a LEED certified as an environmentally sustaining “green” facility and is open to the public year-round, including use of our public restrooms.  This state-of-the-art complex features a 318 seat Main Theater along with flexible meeting and theater space in the Studio Theater and the beautiful Harborview Room.

Stunning view of Nantucket Harbor from the Harborview Room.

With a rich history dating back over 180 years, the Dreamland has been lovingly restored through the generous donations of private donors as the arts, education, cultural and community center of Nantucket.
