WALDOBORO — The Waldo Theatre, 916 Main St., hosts a series of winter movie matinee and evening screenings, January through March, beginning with “Mamma Mia!” Wednesday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m. and Friday, Jan. 14, at 7 p.m.

In this 2008 musical romance, a bride-to-be attempts to solve the mystery of her paternity by reading her mother’s diary and inviting her three potential dads to her wedding. Based on the popular ABBA-inspired stage musical, “Mamma Mia!” the movie features an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, Pierce Brosnan, Dominic Cooper, Colin Firth, Amanda Seyfried, Stellan Skarsgård and Julie Walters.

More movie events are scheduled through March, with two Disney matinees scheduled for the February school break. On March 16 and 18, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, “Leap Year,” starring Amy Adams and Matthew Goode, takes audiences on a romantic comedy trip across Ireland.

The Waldo was commissioned in 1936 as a state-of-the-art movie house and opened in 1937 with a screening of “Pennies from Heaven” starring Bing Crosby.

After closing in 2014, the historic building was saved and renovated by local community members beginning in 2017. Thanks to volunteers, generous donors, and the installation of new technology, The Waldo recently reopened as a performing arts center offering live music, theatre, educational programs, and movies on its big screen.

Masks and proof of COVID-19 vaccination are required inside the theatre. Adults attending with children under the age of 12 will be asked a series of standardized COVID questions.

Adult tickets are $8 online in advance and $10 at the door; youth tickets (up to age 17) are $5. Some movies are rated PG and some material may not be suitable for children. For details, a schedule of upcoming movie events, and tickets, visit waldotheatre.org/pages/movies.
