LUNCH AND LECTURE
“Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theaters”
A book talk by Amy Davis
Co-hosted by Johns Hopkins University Press
Amy Davis, an award-winning photojournalist for the Baltimore Sun, has been documenting Baltimore movie theaters for more than a decade. Her new book from JHU Press, Flickering Treasures, pairs vintage black-and-white images of downtown movie palaces and modest neighborhood theaters with her own stunning full-color photographs, inviting us to imagine Charm City’s past as we confront today’s neglected urban landscape. Amy joins us to discuss the creation of her beautiful and fascinating book, sharing the stories behind the photographs and some of the engaging reminiscences she heard along the way—from moviegoers,theater owners, ushers, and the likes of Barry Levinson and John Waters.
