CAMDEN — The Shotwell Drive-In’s Summer Series continues with a film by Kevin Macdonald documenting the life of Bob Marley, “Marley,” on Thursday, Aug. 5, and a Secret Summer Screening, Saturday, Aug. 7. Both screenings will start at 8 p.m. 

“Marley” is a documentary-biographical film that received critical acclaim upon release in 2012. Born into poverty in rural Jamaica, Bob Marley became a prophet for the world’s oppressed, preaching peace, love, and understanding with a universal language, song. On what would have been Marley’s 75th birthday, Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald combines unheard tracks, unseen footage, and intimate interviews to paint a definitive portrait of the legendary artist. 

The Shotwell is thrilled to announce a sneak preview screening of one of the year’s most anticipated films, directed by a husband and wife powerhouse team … who also happen to be alumni of the Camden International Film Festival! The filmmakers will be in attendance at this special, under-wraps show. Don’t miss it! This film is rated R. 

The Shotwell Summer Series is sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank. Tickets are $20 per vehicle and are available online at Doors open an hour before the scheduled start time. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early. Late entry may not be permitted. The Shotwell is conveniently located off of Route 1 in Rockport. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
