Event has passed

    CAMDEN — Actor Gabriel Byrne is making a rare Maine public appearance Saturday, March 9, at 7 p.m., at the Camden Opera House, to raise money for domestic abuse awareness. “An evening with Gabriel Byrne”  features a screening of Byrne's iconic 1995 film The Usual Suspects followed by a live Question and Answer session with the star himself.

    Tickets are $35 and can be bought at All proceeds go to Finding Our Voices, the Camden-based grassroots nonprofit breaking the silence of domestic abuse across Maine. 

    “Gabriel Byrne is not only one of my favorite actors,” said Patrisha McLean, founder and CEO of Finding Our Voices, in a news release, "but he is one of my favorite people, because not only did he offer to do this super-exciting event for us for free, he is paying the rental fee for the venue. With the Camden Opera House picking up the cost of the movie’s licensing fee, that means every penny of ticket sales will bring light to domestic abuse survivors.”   
    McLean added, “That Mr. Byrne has kept a very low profile for the 10 years that he has lived in Midcoast Maine makes it even more special that he is stepping up in such a big way for us.”
    The Usual Suspects was named one of the 10 greatest mystery movies of all time by the American Film Institute and is rated R. Byrne’s other 80-plus starring roles include the movies Miller’s Crossing and Little Women and the TV series In Treatment. His 2021 memoir Walking With Ghosts recounting his Irish childhood and remarkable journey to Hollywood was adapted by Byrne for a one-man-show in London’s West End and Broadway.  
    According to Finding Our Voices, out-of-town attendees of the March 9 event can receive a 15 percent discount on rooms in three hotels in Camden and one in Rockport by letting the hotels know they have tickets to the event and showing the tickets at check-in.

    Finding Our Voices provides ground-breaking domestic abuse-awareness campaigns as well as peer-support programs for Maine’s women survivors. Its programs include a Get Out Stay Out Fund, pro bono dental program called Finding Our Smiles, online support groups and a poster campaign featuring the photo portraits of 45 Maine survivors including an incarcerated woman and Governor Janet T. Mills. For more information visit
