An Unexpected top Notch Experience
Aug 2021 • Couples
What an unexpected and wonderful experience. An Opera House in little Stonington, Maine? Had to check it out! We were lucky enough to be there for a performance of Broadway music featuring a performer with the Metropolitan Opera and many others, two members of the cast of Phantom of the Opera (one of which played the lead for many years!) and two other cast members with many years of Broadway and musical theater experience. In Stonington! What an evening we enjoyed. Our first live music event since COVID. The Opera House employed mask protocols for all which was much appreciated. An outstanding performance. I wish we were staying longer to see other offerings. Absolutely check out their schedule if you plan a visit. Not to be missed. Highly, highly recommend.

A cultural gem overlooking Stonington Harbor
Aug 2019
Don't miss a visit to this performing arts and community gathering center in charming Stonington, ME. Summertime offers professional quality theatrical productions, a jazz festival, family-friendly entertainment and first-release movies. To experience the full glory of Opera House Arts, stop by the glass-walled lobby before a show for drinks, snacks and flat-bread pizza.

Unique Experience
Sep 2019
I was on vacation in Stonington this fall and enjoyed a movie at the Opera House Arts complex. It was a ton of fun to experience the small town movie experience with family and friends in a historic theater. There were great snacks and adult beverages available and super friendly staff that enhanced the experience. In the past we attended a rock concert here where the band was a led by a lobsterman and his Ex which was quite interesting. Recommend the Opera House Arts for an enjoyable and interesting local experience.

Overlooking the harbor
Sep 2018 • Couples
It is hard to miss the Opera House that sits on a hill overlooking Stonington harbor. There was nothing offered during our midweek visit during the off season, but I am looking forward to our next visit that I will schedule for the weekend. In any case, the exterior of the building is impressive.

Big nite out!
Sep 2018 • Couples
Relaxing in quiet Stonington for a week, having this gem of a theater to go to was such a pleasure! Old school seats, but our old bodies found them very comfortable... since they're not tiered, it might make sense to ask tall people to make their way to the back or side seats, especially if subtitled films are shown. Hope it continues to thrive!

Great place to catch a movie or a local production
Jun 2018 • Friends
We went to the movies at the Opera House twice while recently visiting Stonington. Reminds me of the movie houses of my youth - very quaint. Love the atmosphere before the movie with people enjoying a bite to eat and a drink while looking out on the beautiful scenery. I love that the locals are maintaining their heritage in keeping this lovely building thriving.

Had a great time watching "A Walk in the Woods"
Oct 2015
A Saturday night watching "A Walk in the Woods" was a great way to spend an evening in Stonington. The house was fairly full, and it looks like they will be screening relatively first run or recent run movies over the next several weeks.

A Great Saturday Evening
Oct 2015 • Friends
I went to see a movie while I was on vacation. The Opera House is a restored theater with the original seats from the 1930's. There is a pile of extra cushions in the back of the theater for use if you prefer an more comfortable sit. They also sell beer and wine for your viewing enjoyment. So get comfortable, enjoy a glass of wine, and enjoy the show!

Great Entertainment Venue
Sep 2015 • Friends
I saw the incomparable Derrick Semler perform at this venue and it was a wonderful experience. Opera House Arts is a small club with an intimate setting that made two hours of great blues music just fly by. OHA is run by a group of dedicated volunteers and interns who love their jobs and it really shines through in the very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. They offer movies, live local talent like Derrick, and a lot more. The food offerings are of high quality and it is one of the few places I go where I can enjoy a beer at the movies. Check this place out next time you are in Stonington.
