Baltimore’s underground film scene of the 1960s. The Orson Welles Cinema in Cambridge during the early ’70s. Baltimore’s celebrated Charles Theatre in the ’80s and the Orpheum Cinema during the ’90s.

In just 25 short minutes, you’ll learn so much about how revival cinemas started, where they are and where they’re going. Honestly, this could have been 25 hours long and I would have soaked up every moment. I strongly advise you to check this out.
