$10M Chatham Fire Station Opened

Last Sunday, the town of Chatham opened its new $10M Fire Station with commemorative giant scissors, much to the amazement of the people of Chatham. The inside was spectacular, and the Cape Cod Chronicle shot a video of the opening with the help of Chatham Kids Magazine editor Rowan Wood. You can see it below.

Chatham Orpheum Theater Released 'Back to the Future' Promo & Behind the Scenes

Back to the Future is no doubt the best sci-fi comedy of all time. Combining gags with the styles of the times, it is a fun flick for the whole family.

While the Chatham Orpheum Theater has hosted the film before, this time it has a special new element: Producer/writer Bob Gale, actress Lea Thompson, and Doc Brown himself Christopher Lloyd will be hosting a live Q&A session before a screening of the film. This event will happen on June 8, with tickets priced at $50.

Assistant manager at the Orpheum Geoff Basset has developed a parody/promo for Back to the Future, starring Rowan Wood (editor of Chatham Kids Magazine) and Jim Cole (film reviewer for the Cape Cod Chronicle). Shortly after the video's release, Wood posted a behind-the-scenes video, which can be seen below along with the promo.

"The Finest Hours" Deleted Scenes Released Online

When The Finest Hours was released, the film left out a "key scene" that was filmed in downtown (pictured left) Chatham the winter before the movie's release. Audiences were sad to not have seen it, and it looks like they never will.

Both the deleted scenes that can be seen on the DVD are posted below, with no sign of the downtown scene. However, the two scenes that are included hopefully live up to their expectations and do not disappoint.

"The Finest Hours" DVD & Blu-ray is Out!

In January 2016, the Orpheum Theater became one of the top theaters in the United States playing The Finest Hours. Most would assume this was just because the film took place and was partly filmed right here in Chatham. But very few know that one of the factors contributing to the movie's success in Chatham was simply that it was a good movie.

The DVD and Blu-ray of The Finest Hours have been released and are now available on Amazon, along with numerous special features to go along with your movie. These include deleted scenes, a mini-biography of Bernie Webber, cast opinions on the film, and a heartfelt featurette in which members of the Chatham Coast Guard share their stories of rescues they've performed.

You can buy the DVD here for $17.99, the Blu-ray here for $22.99, and you can get the film for Amazon Video here ($19.99).
