Arlo Guthrie once sang that “You can get anything you want at Alice’s Restaurant ...” — but today, you’ll have to go to Gloucester’s Cape Ann Community Cinema to see it.
Guthrie’s 1969 hippie holiday classic “Alice’s Restaurant” springs to life once again when the Cape Ann Community Cinema presents its annual showing of the film Thanksgiving evening at 5 p.m., with tickets priced at $10.
The film stars Guthrie, is based on his epic song — and was filmed in the Berkshires, where Alice Brock ran her restaurant and later “Take Out Alice” in the town of Stockbridge, and where Guthrie lives today in the town of Washington.
The presentation benefits Cape Ann’s Open Door food pantry, and guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for donation.
The cinema is located at 21 Main St. in Gloucester. For information, visit www.CapeAnnCinema.com.
