    Film fest fever

    Let’s face it; the second half of winter is tough sledding. Nothing provides a temporary escape like film; while it is tempting to stay on the couch, Midcoast big screens offer the kind of cinematic immersion that really feels like a vacation.

In 2017, a portion of that community event took place at the Crosby Center, as the renovated former city high school has become known. For the next two weekends, the Crosby will host “* Ask Me No …
