HARBOR THEATER

185 Townsend Ave., Boothbay Harbor ~ 633-0438 ~ www.boothbaycinema.org

Mama Mia! Here We Go Again” - HELD OVER! The original Mamma Mia was a huge hit on the London stage, then on Broadway, and finally one of the most popular films of the last decade. Now, 10 years later on the same Greek island of Kalokairi, Donna (Meryl Streep / Lily James as young Donna) has retired from running her small hotel, and daughter Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is taking over.

Pregnant, and concerned that she can't do it all by herself, even with guidance from mom’s lifelong friends Tanya and Rosie, Sophie decides to find out more about Donna’s past. She delves into how her mom ran the hotel, met each one of Sophie’s dads and raised a baby, all on her own … and has an unexpected visit from someone she had never met before, her grandmother (Cher). Thru flashbacks, we learn how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present.

“The music is what matters, of course and ABBA does not disappoint nor does the choreography of cartwheels through orchards.” - KDHX ST LOUIS

Itzhak” - the documentary, is as charming as the man himself, violinist Itzhak Perlman. Director Alison Chemick paints an intimate portrait of the virtuoso musician, his wife, his friends, his family life … told in his own words, with his incredible music in the background. Chemick goes beyond the musician to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel to New York City and their incredible efforts to support the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak's life is a happy one and his passion for music, food, family and friends is totally infectious.
