Peyton Place

Maine in the Movies -- POSTPONED

Our MAINE IN THE MOVIES screenings have been POSTPONED -- please stay tuned for reschedule dates!

Shot on location in in Camden, Belfast, Rockland, Lincolnville, Rockport, and Thomaston, Maine, PEYTON PLACE was nominated for no less than nine Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, five Best Acting or Supporting Acting nominations and—perhaps in part thanks to Camden’s great beauty—Best Cinematography. In this adaptation of Grace Metalious’ popular novel, steamy goings-on abound in the small, prim New England community of Peyton Place. Newcomer Michael Rossi arrives in town on the eve of World War II and is soon involved with gorgeous but prudish shop owner Constance MacKenzie (Lana Turner), who keeps some secrets from her daughter, Allison. Amidst engagements and school graduations, Michael discovers seething, dark undercurrents that include assault, suicide—and murder.
