Baltimore's Golden Age of Movie Theaters
Reminisce through the golden age of Baltimores movie theaters. Move through the magical decades of one of our latest exhibitions, Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimores Forgotten Movie Theatres. Joe Tropea, MCHCs 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 Baltimores movie theaters celebrated how we lived and dreamed.
