Criterion Theater is a beautiful old theater in the heart of Bar Harbor. While it is closed during the pandemic, it is worth a visit and a place to enjoy a show. Spend some time looking at the detail in addition to whatever is playing.

Visiting this theatre is like walking into a time machine of a past era. The art deco alone is worth the price of admission. Be sure to sit on the side aisle seats for the best unobstructed view. I thoroughly enjoyed the live performance by the Robinson Ballet. I like that the theatre is used for a mix of visual and musical arts: bands, movies, ballet, theater. The Theatre is a valuable asset to a small town.

Wonderful concert with Irish group Lunasa. The sound system was great, able to clearly hear words and instruments. Very glad the Criterion has been putting on traditional and popular music concerts for our local community
