Harbor Theater presented two highly successful outdoor film events on Thursday and Friday as a thank you to the community for its patience and support while we are closed due to COVID-19.
Thursday night 24 boatloads of people moored off Linekin Bay Resort watching "Dirty Dancing" on a big pop-up screen (17’ x 30’). Linekin Bay Resort owners Scott Larson and Steve Malcom cooked hamburgers and hot dogs on the dock for hungry boaters, and the theater supplied candy and popcorn. Live music entertained the guests until it got dark enough to show the film.
Saturday was a perfect moonlit night at Newagen Seaside Inn, and almost 100 people (state limit due to COVID-19) distanced themselves on the lawn on blankets or in chairs to watch E.T. on the big screen. Many, many families with children of all ages spread out across the lawn to watch the popular film. It was great to see them enjoying a special event that could be done outside, safely and securely, despite the pandemic.
The third planned event, a drive-in at Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort, was postponed because of heavy rain. We are planning a family drive-in movie in September when dates can be established with the company supplying the screen and projection booth.
