To our Members, Supporters & Patrons,

The Dreamland, while providing a wide variety of programming meant to bring us all together, also offers opportunities to “get away from it all”, with quiet screenings held throughout the year on a daily basis. And that is why in these unprecedented times we’d hoped that leaving The Dreamland open for screenings would provide an opportunity for islanders to get out of the house while observing recommended safe practices. As we now know from recent statements made by our local health officials, staying completely away from public gathering spaces will prove to be a key factor as we seek to eliminate the threat of the COVID-19 virus on Nantucket.

It is with this in mind, The Dreamland announces it will suspend film screenings and all public operations until at least Saturday, March 28th, at which time another decision will be made based on the best information, recommendations, and data available.

While the full impact of COVID-19 is yet to be determined, we know The Dreamland will be impacted in unprecedented ways, as will many organizations and businesses in our community. We hope that you and your families remain safe and in good health during this period of social separation, and you have my promise that The Dreamland will be back up and running, offering a new date for Nantucket’s Got Talent, and much, much more, as soon as we can safely do so.

If you purchased tickets to an upcoming screening and would like a refund, please reach out to our Box Office Manager Michelle Feldmann at For events that will be rescheduled, such as our screening of FANTASTIC FUNGI, you may also choose to hold tight, and your purchase will be honored on the rescheduled date.

We thank you for your patience and continued support of The Dreamland, Nantucket’s community-supported film and cultural center.
