    5 things to do this weekend, 3.5.09

    1. OK, technically, this is occuring this weekend. Tonight, at midnight, Bangor Mall Cinemas will screen the long-awaited film version of the great graphic novel "Watchmen," much to the delight of comic book fans the world over. It's one of my absolute favorite books of all time, so I'm kind of ridiculously excited to see it. And midnight screening are always fun.
    2. On Saturday the Kave, the Bucksport all ages venue, will host about 8 bajillion bands starting at 5:30 p.m. See You Next Tuesday, Full Blown Chaos, Interrogator, A Plea For Purging, Grave Valor, A Day to Remember, The Falling Fight, Vail’s Gate, Fight For Blood and This and That Apocalypse will play until everyone is too tired to headbang. Admission is $15 at the door, for more info visit
    3. River City Cinema again hosts two Oscar-worthy flicks at the Bangor Opera House this weekend. Friday night check out the delightful Lebanese film "Caramel," and Saturday go see "Frozen River," and indie drama who's star, Melissa Leo, was nominated for Best Actress. Both movies start at 7:30 p.m., and both are $5.
    4. We don't get much ballet here in eastern Maine, so when one of our beloved regional dance companies perform, it's something you don't want to miss. The Atlantic Ballet Company will perform Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" this Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Camden Opera House. Admission is $14 for adults and $10 for students; for more info visit
    5. Contrary to some silly rumors spread around the interwebs, the Bar Harbor Blues Authority is NOT closing, and in fact has expanded its weekend lineup of music to include a totally sweet blues brunch from 12 to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Local blues musicians spice up your post-Saturday night breakfast food extravaganze, and it's only 13 bucks. For more info, visit
