At 580 seats, the Leavitt is able to host some of the bigger name acts that come through Ogunquit. Melissa Manchester and David Sedaris are scheduled for this season, as well as other musicians, comedians, and entertainers of all kinds. Every Tuesday after 10pm is Reggae Night with live DJ Zeke Stern. In mid August we will host the eighth annual Leavittfest, a two-day event featuring great local bands.
From first-run to art, classics, silent film, and festivals. For ninety-three years the Leavitt has been a premiere film exhibitor. We now have the capability of showing both DCP Digital and 35mm film. This summer we look forward to lighthearted comedies as well as the new crop of superheroes. Our silent film series is featured on alternating Thursdays. Jeff Rapsis plays a unique live score for each screening. Be sure to catch JAWS, the Spielberg beach town classic.
The Leavitt is available for use as a private screening room with very affordable rates. It’s a perfect idea for a surprise party, a marathon of your favorite show with friends, video game night, date night, or any customized cinematic experience. Enjoy a fully stocked beer and wine bar as well as fresh popcorn. Advance notice planning preferred.
In years past the Leavitt was known as a ceremonial space as high school graduates from Wells High walked across the stage to receive their diplomas. Today the Leavitt is once again being used as a place of ceremonial congregation, this time for the weddings of happy couples. With natural historic beauty of wood, steel, and tin, the Leavitt has the unmistakable charm of being from another era. It seats 580, and as an indoor venue it is safe from the elements.
