Destructive fires, tens of thousands of visitors and years of sitting deserted made the home of Penobscot Theatre Company the perfect haunt for wary spirits eager to find their home. Learn the history of this fascinating building, go places that most of the public never gets to visit, and see if you can spot the presence of an apparition or two in the shadows. The Bangor Opera House has many secrets. How many will be revealed? Take the tour beginning Oct. 30 to find out.

Way back in January of 1914, Bangor’s Richardsonian Romanesque opera house burned down and had to be demolished. The second opera house was the last in a long line of downtown Bangor theatres. In 1966 it became Bangor Cinema, then it was used for Bangor Symphony Orchestra concerts. The building was acquired by the Penobscot Theatre Company in 1997.
