Damnationland Damnationland 2018

Cinema both dark and disturbing descends upon Maine once again in the form of the 9th annual Damnationland film showcase, returning to local theaters this October before traveling on to festivals and conventions around the globe. Damnationland kicks off this year’s festivities at The State Theatre, as is tradition, with a special premiere screening on Friday, October 12th.
