New films to open April 30, May 2 at Cinema Art Theater

April 29, 2021

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “The Truffle Hunters,” an enchanting documentary about a group of male friends combing the forests for an unlikely delicacy, starting Friday, April 30.

Deep in the forests of Piedmont, Italy, a handful of men, over 70 years old, hunt for the rare and expensive white Alba truffle – which to date has resisted all of modern science’s efforts at cultivation. They are guided by a secret culture and training passed down through generations, as well as by the noses of their cherished and expertly trained dogs. As it soon becomes clear, these aging men may just hold something much more valuable than even the prized truffle: the secret to a rich and meaningful life.

Screening times are 3 p.m., Friday, April 30; 1 p.m., Wednesday, May 5; and 6 p.m., Thursday, May 6.

CAT will present “Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street,” a delightful documentary that takes viewers inside the minds and hearts of creators, artists, and writers of the beloved children’s television show.

The film is an unprecedented look at the team who conceived of and brought the groundbreaking “Sesame Street” to life. It features more than 20 interviews with many of the people behind the show, as well as behind-the-scenes footage from its earliest days. Enjoy a look at the amazing puppetry that brings it all to life and learn what it was like to be at the center of a cultural and social phenomenon.

Screening times are 3 p.m., Sunday, May 2, and Thursday, May 6.

Admission is $8 for members and $11 for nonmembers. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online at If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
