Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theaters
Travel back in time with Baltimore Sun photographer Amy Davis, as she presents a slide show lecture based on her book, Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theaters. More than a century of movie-going is examined through a sweeping retrospective of movie theaters in one American city, Baltimore. The contrast between the vintage black-and-white images of opulent downtown movie palaces and neighborhood theaters and Davis’ striking color photographs of these theater sites today is provocative. The impact of societal, technological and cultural change on the business of movie exhibition, in addition to role theater buildings play in an urban environment, will be addressed.
