Odyssey: Flickering Treasures

Travel back in time with photojournalist and author Amy Davis to explore a century of moviegoing in Baltimore. Her new photo book from JHU Press, Flickering Treasures, pairs vintage black-and-white images of theater palaces and modest neighborhood movie houses with her own stunning color photographs, inviting us to imagine Charm City's past as we confront today's neglected urban landscape. Davis will share the history behind the photographs, and engaging reminiscences from Barry Levinson, John Waters, and other Baltimoreans that bring each theater to life. Through the prism of movie house memories, an intimate narrative of loss, change, and rebirth emerges.
