BOOTHBAY HARBOR, ME — A committee met this past week to discuss the future of the Harbor Theatre. If a resolution is not reached, the theater could close at the end of the year.

About 90 movie lovers gathered at The Harbor Theatre last Wednesday night. Not to see a movie, but to show their support and to find out what could be done to keep the peninsula’s only movie theater open.

Bob Devine opened the meeting by introducing Jason Sheckley, owner of The Harbor Theatre, and the members of the new Friends of The Harbor Theatre group. The Friends group formed to explore options for keeping The Harbor Theatre open after Sheckley announced that the theater would have to close on December 31. Members include Bob Devine, Tad Bartlett, Peggy Powis, Howie Barter, Tom Tavenner, Larry Brown, Buzz Morley and Paula Arsenault.
