“City of Gold” Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold shows us a Los Angeles where ethnic cooking is a kaleidoscopic portal to the mysteries of an unwieldy city and the soul of America. As piping-hot platters are served up, so are stories of immigrants whose secret family recipes are like sacred offerings pledged for the opportunity to build their American Dream.

With eternal curiosity, razor-sharp intellect, and existential longing, Gold is a culinary geographer taking us where no critic has gone before in this richly penetrating documentary odyssey. Plays at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 28.

“Zootopia” Animated fun for the whole family from Disney! From the largest elephant to the smallest shrew, the city of Zootopia is a mammal metropolis where various animals live and thrive. When Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) becomes the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law.

Determined to prove herself, Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case. Unfortunately, that means working with Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), a wily fox who makes her job even harder.

Adam Graham, writing for Detroit News, describes "Zootopia" as "a delight: It's cute and clever, smart and sophisticated, with plenty to offer children and adults".

“Zootopia,” Disney’s 55th animated feature film, plays at 7 p.m. Friday, April 29, Saturday, April 30, Wednesday, May 4 and Thursday, May 5; Sunday, May 1 at 2 p.m.

Coming May 13-19: “The Congressman,” written, directed by Bob Mrazek, filmed on Monhegan Island. Starring Treat Williams, Elizabeth Marvel, Ryan Merriman and George Hamilton. Mrazek will be at the theater to talk about the production and answer audience questions on a date to be determined during the run in Boothbay Harbor.

The Harbor Theatre is located at 185 Townsend Avenue in the Meadow Mall. For more information, call 207-633-0438 or visit

“Where to Invade Next” To show what the U.S.A. can learn from 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 and its prison system, Tunisia and its strongly progressive women's policy and Iceland and its strong female presence in government and business among others, Michael Moore discovers there is much that American should emulate. Four showings at 2 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4 and Thursday, May 4.

The Lincoln Theater is located at 2 Theater Street in Damariscotta. For more information, call 207-563-3424 or visit
