Inaugural event brings international film flavor to MDI

BAR HARBOR - The cinema of the world is coming to Bar Harbor this fall.

BANGOR – The revitalization of Bangor has been a consistent theme for the City for the past 10 years or so. New restaurants, artisan shops and incredible growth in culture is something that continues to this day. Part of this surge is the City of Bangor’s Commission on Cultural Development (sometimes informally called the Cultural Commission). The goal of the commission has been to foster and grow arts and culture in Bangor, as well as increase awareness of art and culture in the area. And then ARTober was born.

Kierie Pinccininni, a chair on the Bangor Commission on Cultural Development, Emily Burnham and Elisabeth Young, commissioners on the marketing committee, and Caitlin Brooke, the staff liason for the commission on cultural development, were the central figures who helped research the events and draw on talent to organize the month-long celebration – no small feat.

A few fall films – 15 for ‘15

by Allen Adams

The summer of 2015 was a good one for the box office, featuring a number of record-breaking films – including a few that cleared the billion-dollar hurdle. Massive blockbusters were thick on the ground, and while there were a few duds, there weren’t as many as you might expect. All told, it was a pretty great cinematic summer.

However, just because autumn has arrived doesn’t mean that there’s going to be a massive drop-off. In fact, there’s plenty to like in the fall of 2015. There are box office giants and popular properties and a few prestige pictures as well; it’s time to take a look at some of what’s in store. This past weekend really marked the start of the fall season, with films such as “Black Mass” and “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” (both reviewed in this week’s edition) hitting the screen, but there’s more – much more – on the way.

Multiple Points of View

by Katy England

A look back on the kiddos and mom life

It was around this time four years ago that I wrote about Three New Englands (Aug. 24, 2011), and I’ve kept tabs on them in the paper. Rather than re-cap everything I’ve written already, I thought I’d bring you all behind the scenes to the lead-up and the reaction of some friends and family to the news. I’ll also include some anecdotes, dos-and-don’ts and other observation that I haven’t written about (or I forgot I wrote about).
