Baltimore's Golden Age of Movie Theaters

Baltimore's Golden Age of Movie Theaters

Reminisce through the golden age of Baltimore’s movie theaters. Move through the magical decades of one of our latest exhibitions, Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theatres. Joe Tropea, MCHC’s Curator of Films & Photographs, will reflect on what going to the movies was like all the way back to day one of Electric Park, through current day theater. Using contemporary and historical photographs, memories and narrative, Joe and his guests, Amy Davis, Baltimore Sun photographer and author of Flickering Treasures, Robert K. Headley, motion picture exhibition historian and author of Motion Picture Exhibition in Baltimore, Eric R. Cotton, founder of the Baltimore Filmmakers Collective, and activist Ralph Moore, will muse on how Baltimore’s movie theaters celebrated how we lived and dreamed.

Presented as part of Doors Open Baltimore 2020, in collaboration with the Baltimore Architecture Foundation. This virtual program has been supported in part by PNC Bank.
