Moving indoors ...
Got live music if you want it: at the Opera House at Boothbay Harbor at 86 Townsend Ave.
If seeing movies on the silver screen while munching on yummy popcorn calls to you, in Boothbay Harbor there’s the Harbor Theater at 185 Townsend Ave.
Movie goers in or visiting Damariscotta go to Lincoln Theater at 2 Theater St.
