YORK BEACH, ME — A long-standing summer tradition will be gone in a few weeks when the York Beach Cinema closes its doors.

For 78 years, no summer was complete for locals, seasonal residents and visitors alike without taking in a movie at the York Beach Cinema. Like tasting that first Goldenrod kiss of the season, it was tradition.

But in a few short weeks, as August gives way to September, this beach stalwart will be closing its doors for good.

Very sad. In many ways, it is rather amazing that this theater was able to hang on as long as it has. Further on up the Maine coast in Bar Harbor, there is also a beautifully preserved art deco specimen named the Criterion Theater that continues to thrill locals and summer vacationers with a bill of current films that changes two or three times a week. I had the pleasure of visiting the Criterion a few weeks back and snapped a bunch of photos which I posted on its page here.
