The Maine Film Center (MFC) Launches New Railroad Square Cinema Website Features Streaming Recommendations from the Maine Film Center and Ease-of-Use Functionality and Flexibility During Unprecedented Closure Due to COVID-19


Waterville, Maine – The Maine Film Center (MFC) is making the most of its unscheduled COVID-19 “intermission” (aka temporary closure) by launching a new website for the Railroad Square Cinema, Maine’s only Sundance Art House Project theatre. The new and enhanced website features a more mobile-friendly interface for visitors, allows for a greater diversity of content sharing, and for the first time ever includes streaming film recommendations from the Maine Film Center staff. The new website can be found at Http://


“All of us at the Maine Film Center are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support during these difficult times that have literally reshaped the way we entertain, educate, and build community,” says Mike Perreault, executive director of the Maine Film Center. “While watching at home can in no way rival the experience of the cinema, the new Railroad Square Cinema website will feature a curated selection of titles available for streaming. We hope that by presenting some of the best American independent, international, and classic films available online in this way, our audiences will still be able to enjoy quality films and look eagerly toward the future when we can again project, congregate, discuss, debate, and revel in—to the fullest extent—our passion for cinema.”


Established in 1978, Railroad Square Cinema is a three-screen independent movie theater boasting the “best popcorn in the known universe.” Saluted by the Sundance Film Institute as one of the first theaters in the country to be included in its Art House Project, Railroad Square Cinema is consistently recognized as one of the region’s top theaters and according to Yankee Magazine is Maine’s “Best Art-House Theater.”
