Criterion Theater


The stage has been redone to accommodate a great line-up of live music and theater productions to be held throughout the summer. A full schedule of first run movies will also be shown.

Located in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, the Criterion Theatre first opened its doors on June 6th, 1932. The Criterion was used for vaudeville performances for many years during the heyday of the vaudeville circuit, as well as motion picture exhibition. The acoustics are excellent, and every aspect of the theater was designed specifically for the location.
