At the Lincoln
"How to Train Your Dragon 2" will open at the Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta on Friday, Aug. 8.

We have such a fun week ahead, from the laughter of Monty Python to the joy of exploring movies; from the endurance of athletes to the memories of war. Add a wonderful animated feature for the kids and it sums up nicely to something for everybody this week at Lincoln Theater. We hope you'll enjoy a break from the sun and enter the world of air-conditioned entertainment.

Monty Python Live (mostly)
For the first time in more than three decades, comedy legends Monty Python performed live on stage together this year. The members of Monty Python are rightfully regarded as among the world's finest-ever comedians. Plays Wednesday, Aug. 6 at 7 p.m. and encores Thursday, Aug. 14 at 7 p.m.

'Life Itself' (R, one hour 55 minutes)
A documentary film that recounts the inspiring and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert. Closes Thursday, Aug. 7 at 2 p.m.

'100: Head/Heart/Feet' (NR) with Q&A
If you thought a 26.2-mile marathon was tough, lace up your running shoes for a journey into the world of ultra-running. Some call them adventure racers, extreme endurance athletes, or just plain crazy as they prepare to run a 30-hour, 100-mile race ... no stopping, no resting, no whining.

Plays Thursday, Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the filmmakers and Medomak Valley High School grad Zak Wieluns, who is featured in the film.

'How to Train Your Dragon 2' (PG, one hour 42 minutes)
It's been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snotlout, and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races, the now inseparable pair discover a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons, and find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.

Plays Friday, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 10 at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 13 at 7 p.m., and Thursday, Aug. 14 at 2 p.m.

BBC Docudrama: 'Royal Cousins at War' (two hours two minutes, free)
At the outbreak of World War I, three cousins reigned over Europe's greatest powers - Tsar Nicholas II, of Russia; Kaiser Wilhelm II, of Germany; and King George V, of England.

This docudrama looks at the role played by the three monarchs, and their relationships with each other, in the outbreak of war, arguing that it is far greater than historians have traditionally believed. Plays Monday, Aug. 11 at 7 p.m.

This is the second of three free offerings from the theater to commemorate the centenary of WWI.

Coming Soon
"Words and Pictures" opens Friday, Aug. 15. Salt Bay Chamberfest's family concert takes place Saturday morning, Aug. 16. Our final WWI docudrama, "Churchill's First World War," screens Monday, Aug. 16.
