What to do in the off-season? It’s a question a lot of people ask themselves. Businesses and arts organizations do, too. The Vineyard Playhouse, which opened its doors again this summer to a refurbished building and stage, seems to have answered the question — poetry, film and song.

Last week it held a poetry cafe hosted by the Island’s newest poet laureate Arnie Reisman, and on Saturday, Nov. 15, Molly Conole will direct an evening of the best of Broadway called Wicked Good Winter Cabaret. Singers include Ms. Conole, Paul Munafo and Kenny Romero, with Phil Dietterich on the piano. The cost is $20.

And each Monday in November the playhouse has hosted a classic movie night. Actually, Jamie Alley, an expert on classic movies, is the official host. Alfred Hitchcock’s The Trouble with Harry started the series and last Monday, Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman heated up the screen in All That Heaven Allows. The following two Mondays belong to Maureen O’Hara.

On November 17, Ms. O’Hara stars with Clifton Webb in Sitting Pretty. Mr. Webb is Mr. Belvedere, an author who takes a job as babysitter of three young kids to research his next novel.

And on November 24, Ms. O’Hara stars with Santa Claus (Edmund Gwenn) in Miracle on 34th Street. Bring the whole family.

Films begin at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are at the classic price of $5.
