Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley act in a scene from "Begin Again," which opens at the Harbor Theatre on Friday, Aug. 1.

Back by popular demand, "The Endless Summer" is playing this Thursday, followed by "Begin Again," "Jersey Boys," and "Chef," all this week at The Harbor Theatre.

After a nearly 50-year hiatus, "The Endless Summer" returns Thursday evening at 7 p.m.

Bruce Brown had been making films about surfing since the late 1950s, but this was his first film to receive a nationwide release; it was also the first serious cinematic look at the sport to click with a large audience.

In his narration, Brown muses that if someone had enough time and money, they could literally follow the summer around the globe, and so Brown and two of his surfing buddies, Robert August and Mike Hynson, decide to do just that.

With their surfboards as luggage, August and Henson travel from one coastline to the next, trying the waves in Hawaii, Africa, Australia, Tahiti, and a number of other nations where most folks had never even seen a surfboard before.

Along the way, August and Hynson learn a lot about people around the world, and grow up a bit while they search for the elusive perfect wave. "The Endless Summer" also features a great surf-rock score by The Sandals.

"The Endless Summer" plays at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 31.

"Begin Again" is the latest film from writer-director John Carney ("Once"), a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together.

Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long time boyfriend, Dave (Adam Levine), are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label.

But the trappings of his newfound fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own.

Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.

"Begin Again," rated R, plays Friday, Aug. 1 through Sunday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m.

"Jersey Boys" is based on the Tony Award-winning musical about the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. Their song hits included "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Dawn," "Rag Doll," "Bye Bye Baby," "Who Loves You," and many more. Directed by Clint Eastwood.

"Jersey Boys" is rated R. It plays Monday, Aug. 4 and Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 7 p.m.

The popular "Chef" movie returns Aug. 6 and 7. When Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what is next.

Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife, his friend, and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Casper goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen and his zest for life and love.

"Chef" is written and directed by and stars Jon Favreau (director of "Wolf of Wall Street" and "Iron Man 3") with Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr.

"Chef" is rated R for language. It plays through Saturday, July 26, evenings at 7 p.m.

For more information, call the 24-hour movie phone at 633-0438 or like the theater on Facebook. The theater is at the junction of Routes 27 and 96 in Boothbay Harbor, across from Hannaford Supermarket.
