"Dare to Dream" Film Series

Steve McQueen -
The Man & Le Mans

The amazing true story of life in the fast lane. At the time Le Mans went into production McQueen was one of cinema's biggest stars. Given his choice of film projects thanks to a lucrative deal with Cinema Center Studios, McQueen quickly began work on the passion project he had been dreaming about for the past decade. But as production on Le Mans got underway, the driven star would be forced to contend not only with the sudden departure of the film's original director, John Sturgis, but his own failing marriage, the threat of bankruptcy, and the fear of learning that he had been targeted for death by one of the most notorious serial killers of the 20th Century as well.  A story of obsession, betrayal and ultimate vindication. 

Documentary film not rated. Not recommended for young children.

Andrew Silver: Variety Artist
Spring Break
Special Morning Matinee!

Years of practice, coupled with his uncanny nimbleness, have cemented Andrew Silver’s reputation as one of Maine’s leading magicians and jugglers. In addition, his versatility and keen sense of timing as a comedian are making him a legend as a professional variety artist.


Andrew’s magic delves deeper than the typical magician’s bag of tricks you often see. His slight of hand and close-up magic, combined with mentalism, physically and psychologically transform his magic into an attention-grabbing experience. The anomaly that convinces audiences they’re seeing things that are aren’t actually true increases the intensity of Andrew’s magic and creates an invisible bond with his audience, tingling their senses and inciting their imagination.


Juggling is not magic—there are no tricks, or slight of hand. Juggling takes intense concentration and years of practice to master, not to mention immeasurable eye/hand coordination.

Watching Andrew’s incredible juggling performance instills in children and adults alike the feeling they’re standing on a precipice, holding their breath in anticipation of the finale when it’s once again okay to breathe.
