Maine in the Movies: Wet Hot American Summer
March 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Maine in the Movies celebrates Maine’s Bicentennial through film. This movie festival spans across 17 Maine cities and showcases 35 films that were set in Maine.
“The title of this inventive absurdist comedy is mean to mislead – it’s not a sex movie but a parody, and the loose feel is part of its genius. On the final day of summer camp in Maine in 1981, the counselors and the campers – adolescents all – are desperate to make the most of the attachments they’ve formed or to form some at the last minute. The camp director nervously pursues a local astrophysicist with whom she has nothing in common, a distraught art teacher becomes a class project for some precocious campers, and a lovesick counselor spends a not entirely platonic day with someone else’s girlfriend” – Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader.
