Amy Davis: Flickering Treasures
Humanities Forum — Focus on Gentrification in Baltimore
Amy Davis, author and Baltimore Sun photojournalist, presents vintage images of opulent movie palaces and neighborhood theaters in her talk on Baltimore’s forgotten movie theaters. Based on her new book, Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theaters, Davis invites us to imagine Charm City’s past as we confront today’s neglected urban landscape. A fresh story of Baltimore emerges through the social, cultural and architectural prism of its movie theaters. Rare photos, combined with Davis’s evocative color photography and poignant reminiscences, bring a century of movie-going to life.
A book signing will follow the program.
