Dancing at the Mill movie
Date: Tuesday Jul 26, 2016
Time: 8:00 p.m. -


 The Mount Desert Chamber of Commerce will host an outdoor screening of Dancing at the Mill: Two Centuries of Life on Mount Desert Island. Bring a lawn chair or blanket, friends and family, and good centennial cheer! Starts at dusk (around 8 p.m.).

In 1761 Abraham Somes sailed to Mt. Desert Island and settled in a sheltered harbor at the head of Somes Sound. This film celebrates the generations who have followed. Using the island’s rich troves of historical photographs as well as early film footage, the film paints a picture of two centuries of daily life on the island. The film was written by Gunnar Hansen with music scored and performed by Bob Habib and the narration by Jack Perkins. It was filmed, edited and produced by Jeff Dobbs Productions, with support from the Mount Desert Island Historical Society and the Savage family.
