Maine Microcinema is a pop-up art show. Colin and Craig, the founders of the program, have a homemade screen and a projector and host shows at She Doesn’t Like Guthrie’s in Lewiston. All the movies they host are free and have a Maine connection – if they aren’t made in Maine than someone prominent in the crew is from here.

The Corner is an adaptation of one of humanity’s first defining features: storytelling. Organizer Michael Sargent picks five people to tell a short story – about 5 minutes – based around some theme (i.e. thrill, broken). There are also slots for people who show up to speak.
