The Flickering Treasures Film Series features a wide range of movie theater-related themes: the passion of local cinephiles, exhibitor

ingenuity and showmanship, moviegoing as a form of storytelling and nostalgia for small town theaters and shared matinee memories.

This series highlights not only the creativity of exhibitors, but also the sense of community created by the moviegoing experience. The

series is co-presented with the National Building Museum, and screens in conjuction with their current exhibition, “Flickering Treasures:

Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theaters”. For information about the exhibition, visit
