(Beverly, MA – September 1, 2021) The Cabot is excited to announce its schedule for the month of September, filled with live events, movies, community events, and even a little Shakespeare.

Kicking off the month will be Shakespeare’s The Taming of The Shrew, presented by Lanes Coven Theater Company at The Porch Sessions at Hale Farm. The Cabot will be screening movies every weekend with classics like The Big Lebowski and Citizen Kane; Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone is slotted for the theater’s $1 Movie this month on September 3rd. The Porch Sessions will wrap up its second season on September 9th with “A Celebration of Women in Popular Music,” taking patrons on an exploration of female voices and songwriters in the pop canon. The Machine, Joan Osborne and Madeleine Peyroux, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are slated to perform on The Cabot stage this month.

The Cabot will be hosting a free community event on September 8th in partnership with local non-profit, Leading Ladies, which is committed to equal access for all to education, health care, housing, food, jobs, and political representation, whatever their ethnicity, race, religion, or sexual identity. The September 8th event will center on a screening of “Hungry To Learn,” a documentary film that sheds light on the growing issue of food and shelter insecurity among college students, even those attending elite institutions. A discussion and Q&A will follow.

Beginning September 17th, new health & safety policies will take effect at the theater. Patrons attending concerts and live events will be required to provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test administered within 72 hours prior to the event. Patrons will be required to show their vaccination card or test results and a government issued ID prior to entering. Photocopies or a photo on your phone of medical records will be accepted provided all information is visible. For movies, community events and children’s programming, The Cabot is limiting capacity to 50% and using a ticketing system that maintains 2 seats between groups.

About The Cabot 

For a century, The Cabot in Beverly has been a local treasure, a dream palace at the heart of the downtown, and a welcoming gathering place for generations of North Shore residents. Originally known as The Ware, this opulent, neoclassical-style theater was built in 1920 by the renowned architectural firm Funk & Wilcox. Originally used for vaudeville shows and silent movies, it was later owned by the movie chain E.M. Loews. In 1976, The Cabot was purchased by Le Grand David and his own Spectacular Magic Company, and for the next 36 years was home to this world-famous magic show. The Cabot is now being transformed into a 21st century venue for audiences of all ages, with nationally recognized live performers, current and classic movies and community events. Since its reopening in November 2014, The Cabot is once again a vital part of the North Shore’s artistic life. The Cabot celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2020. Visit
