The Maryland Theatre was built for live theater in 1903. Eventually the theater screened films. The theater closed in 1950 and the building was demolished in 1951.
Today is the first full day of the 2011 Maryland Film Festival! If you’re in the Baltimore area, you can catch films today, tomorrow, and all day Sunday. We’re so lucky to have such a great festival in our city.
