General Info

ImprovAcadia is closed during the pandemic and will be moving operations to Bangor Maine


Q: Do you pick on or make fun of the audience?
A: No, we do not. We ask for suggestions throughout the show. Sometimes we ask for a volunteer but do not pick on or pick out any audience members.

Q: Are the 8pm shows appropriate for children?

A: Yes, the 8pm shows are family friendly ranging from G to PG13. If no children are present, we let the audience suggestions inform the rating of the show.

Q: Are the specialty cocktails good?
A: Yes, and they're delicious! We offer a range of seasonally inspired cocktails that are handmade to order.

Q: Should I make reservations?
A: Yes, especially in July and August we often sell out the shows. Reservations are always suggested!

Q: Are specific tables reserved or is it general seating?
A: For the most part it's general seating. First come, first served. Certain numbered parties can only fit in certain tables. We try to accomodate customers' preferences as much as possible.

Q: Do you have an elevator?
A: Yes, an elevator is located through the courtyard of Bayside Landing and goes up to the second floor across our deck to our side door.

Q: Are you air conditioned?
A: Yes!

Q: Is it funny?
A: Yes, we've been here for 17 years and hire professional performers from all over the country. Read our reviews on Trip Advisor, Yelp and Facebook to read what people are saying about us.

Directions and parking

Located in downtown Bar Harbor, 15 Cottage St is near the corner of Main St. on Cottage, just up the hill from the harbor. We're on the second floor above Great Maine Breakfast. Our door with a green awning and our name is to the left of Great Maine Breakfast. We're across the street from Epi's and the Village Emporium.
The metered parking ends at 8pm. Cottage St. has a 4 hour limit until 8pm so there should be turnover available spots near us.

Here's a map but please note that Google seems confused at times. Our address is 15 Cottage St. in Bar Harbor. Not Ellsworth and not on the Bar Harbor Road.

May it Rest In Peace!


Improvision is our collaboration with Reel Pizza now in its 12th season. Reel Pizza shows a really bad film with no sound and the cast of ImprovAcadia improvises an entirely new dialogue and sound track based on an audience inspired suggestion for a film style. Hilarity ensues.

Our 2019 Improvision schedule:
Friday, June 14th
Sunday, July 7th
Sunday, August 18th
Friday, September 20th

All shows are at 11pm.

Reel Pizza is located at 33 Kennebec Place, Bar Harbor 207-288-3811

Tickets go on sale at 4:30 the day of the performance at Reel Pizza
