APCC Screens Film at Chatham Orpheum

One Big Home, Oct 27th at 8 p.m.

The Association to Preserve Cape Cod will screen the film "One Big Home" on Thursday, October 27th at 8 p.m. in the Orpheum Theatre, 637 Main Street Chatham.  Tickets are $12.  

Gentrification comes in many forms. On the tiny island villages of Martha's Vineyard, where presidents and celebrities vacation, trophy homes threaten to destroy the island's unique character.

Twelve years in the making, One Big Home follows one carpenter's journey to understand the trend toward giant houses. When he feels complicit in wrecking the place he calls home, he takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera. Bumping up against angry homeowners and builders who look the other way, he works with his community and attempts to pass a new bylaw to limit house size.
