Serving Maine and Lincoln County for over 140 years
At the Lincoln
“I Love Maine!” will open at the Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta on Friday, April 29.
This weekend, more than 50 kids from the Boothbay Region and CLC YMCAs will stage the world premiere of a new musical, which will even include some surprise guests. With four shows this weekend at family-friendly prices, we hope you’ll bring the gang. And while you’re at it, grab some ice cream from our concession stand. Just in time for summer, we have a new partnership with Stone Fox Farm Creamery. With vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, espresso bean, and salted caramel on hand, there is bound to be something for everyone.
Y-Arts presents ‘I Love Maine! The Musical’
Join Arts and Humanities Director Emily Mirabile for the Y Arts spring production.

Featuring dancing lobsters, singing potatoes, and a hero with a great mustache, this is a hit for the whole family! Tickets $5. Playing at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, April 29 and 30; and 2 and 6 p.m., Sunday, May 1.
Met Live in HD: Strauss’ ‘Elektra’ (1 hour, 45 minutes)
Strauss’ blazing tragedy about an ancient Greek princess hell-bent on revenge comes to the Met in the final opera production by the legendary director Patrice Chéreau, who died in 2014. Esa-Pekka Salonen returns to conduct an extraordinary cast headed by Nina Stemme as the obsessed and bloodthirsty title character. Saturday, April 30 at 1 p.m.
‘Where to Invade Next’ (R)
To show what the USA can learn from the rest of the world, director Michael Moore playfully visits various nations in Europe and Africa as a one-man “invader” to take their ideas and practices for America. Whether it is Italy with its generous vacation time allotments, France with its gourmet school lunches, German with its industrial policy, Norway with its prison system, Tunisia with its strongly progressive women’s policy, or Iceland with its strong female presence in government and business, Moore discovers there is much that America should emulate. Four showings only at 2 and 7 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, May 4 and 5.
“Hello, My Name is Doris” (R) with Sally Field will open May 6, “Eye in the Sky” (R) with Helen Mirren will open May 13, “The Congressman” (R) will open May 20, and “The Jungle Book” (PG) will open May 27.
