More made-in-Maine movies
Camden — At the public’s request, the downtown Camden Opera House will show movies this summer. July Saturday films will be two movies with Midcoast Maine locations, featuring some of our areas’ finest “extras” glimpsed in the backgrounds. General admission tickets will be $8, available an hour before showtime.
In “The Man Without a Face,” screening Saturday, July 14 at 8 p.m., Mel Gibson portrays a former teacher disfigured in an automobile accident who has taken to living alone in a large Maine coastal home. In “Forrest Gump,” screening Saturday, July 28 at 8 p.m., a simple man beautifully portrayed by Hanks leads a truly charmed life filled with many of the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century (and takes a jog by Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde).
August will offers a late summer Wednesday night series of contemporary films with a worldview Aug. 15, 22 and 29. The renovated 1890’s Camden Opera House is air conditioned, shows movies with a state-of-the-art projector on a large movie-sized screen and has wicked comfortable seats.
