152111932 Criterion TheatreReferenceBusinesses, TheatreBar Harbor35 Cottage StreetThe Criterion Theatre is a cinema, performance theatre, and venue located on Cottage Street in Bar Harbor, Maine. It opened in June 1932 featuring vaudeville performances and movies during a time when Bar Harbor's summer scene was at its height. Today it is one of only two Art Deco theaters in the state of Maine and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The 760 seat theatre was built for a convicted bootlegger named George McKay. After his release from federal prison, McKay solicited bids for constructions of a glamorous movie palace. The high bid of $95,206 was beat by Bunker & Savage Architects of Augusta, Maine who built the theatre in just six months for a contract price of $58,000. That's about $900,000 in today's dollars, a surprisingly low figure for such a magnificent structure. A $2 million dollar contribution from an anonymous donor in 2014 made possible the purchase and restoration of the Criterion which now operates as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to safeguarding this historic space for stories, storytellers, and audiences. Today, almost everything in the building is original or as close as possible to it, including the light fixtures, curtains, seats, and stencils on the ceiling.

13203Balance RockReferencePlaces, ShoreBar Harbor"Balance Rock still remains along the Shore Path at the foot of Grant’s Park, also known as Albert’s Meadow. This erratic granite, a type of rock different from the sedimentary strata it rests upon. Geologists believe that the huge boulder was left behind by a retreating glacier." - “Bygone Bar Harbor: A Postcard Tour of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park” by Earl Brechlin, p. 20 - 2002 "Mount Desert Island was host to the Laurentide Ice Sheet as it extended and receded during the Pleistocene epoch. The glacier left a number of visible marks upon the landscape, such as Bubble Rock, a glacial erratic carried 19 miles by the ice sheet from a Lucerne granite outcrop and deposited precariously on the side of South Bubble Mountain in Acadia National Park. Other such examples are the moraines deposited at the southern ends of many of the glacier-carved valleys on the Island such as the Jordan Pond valley, indicating the extent of the glacier; and the beach sediments located in a regressional sequence beneath and around Jordan Pond, indicating the rebound of the continent after the glacier's recession approximately 25,000 years ago." - Gilman, R.A., Chapman, C.A., Lowell, T.V., and Borns, H.W., 1988, "Shaping of the Landscape by Glacial Erosion, in The geology of Mount Desert Island: Augusta, Maine Geological Survey Bulletin 38."
