What is a Grotto? By definition, it is a cave surrounded by water. But, this is not the Grotto your geography teacher told you about. Instead, we are a group of Master Masons that meet on the level for the purpose of fellowship. It’s really as simple as that.
Cinema Grotto has been going strong since 1945. Even after over 70-years as an established Masonic organization, Cinema Grotto has continued to welcome Master Masons on a monthly basis.
Our meetings are held on the 3rd Friday of every month. At 7:30 pm on these nights, you can find us at our home away from home, Old West Masonic Lodge in Newhall, California.
Please feel free to take a stroll through our website, and check out our upcoming events. If you wish to join our band of fellowship attend any of our events, click on the Contact tab and let us know!
It’s time for Tacos, Libations, and Good Fellowship!

Cinema Grotto Monarch
After hearing of the passing of our dear friend and supporter of the Grotto, Cynthia Cunningham, the Prophets of Cinema Grotto passed the Fez at our January meeting in order to collect donations in Cynthia and Past Monarch Jim Cunningham’s memory. We raised $250 and purchased five Enchanted Lanterns in their names to be presented to David Cunningham.
I am very proud to be a member of our Grotto and to see our Prophet’s practicing Sympathy and honoring those who have supported us so fervently.
The memorial service for Cynthia Cunningham will be Sunday, February 17th at 3 PM at Old West Lodge.
It is very important that we make every effort to attend the service, Prophets.
When we practice Sympathy and Good Fellowship, we embody what the M.O.V.P.E.R is all about.
Yours in Good Fellowship,
So often in the Grotto we advocate Good Fellowship, but we must not forget the other action to which our attention is called – Sympathy.
A dear, dear friend of the Enchanted Realm, Mrs. Cynthia Cunningham – wife of Past Monarch Jim Cunningham – passed away on January 5, 2019. She was a huge supporter of Cinema Grotto and helped us in so many ways over the years.
I’d like to start a new tradition at Cinema Grotto. When a Prophet or his Lady goes to the Celestial Lodge above, I would encourage us to purchase an Enchanted Lantern in their name to honor them.
* At our Stated Meeting on Jan. 18th, we will pass the Fez around for donations toward an Enchanted Lantern in Cynthia Cunningham’s name. If possible, I’d like to purchase one in Past Monarch Jim Cunningham’s name as well.
At that time, we will open the floor for anybody who would like to share happy memories of the Cunningham’s.
We are blessed at Cinema Grotto to have men and women like the Cunningham’s who have come before us and paved the way for Sympathy and Good Fellowship.
Yours in fellowship,
Monarch of Cinema Grotto
