Supporters of The Senator create film tribute

Those who attended Senator Joan Carter Conway’s meeting at The Senator last evening were “treated” to a film short entitled, “Baltimore – A City of Theatres”.

We say “treated”, because the intended affect on the audience is not one of “warm fuzzies”, but rather a wake-up call. One to citizens, film buffs & fellow “historic theatre nuts” that that a city once chock full of theatres (over 150 at one time!?), each with their own personality, are now an endangered species…

Moreover, that The Senator Theatre
is the last historic single-screen movie house left in the city!

In our opinion anyone with a bit of historic sensibility or even sentimentality for lost things of beauty will have a difficult time watching this without a knot in their stomach or a tear in their eye.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
