The list of films set to screen outside in this year’s Pics in the Park series downtown includes two new movies with plentiful Oscar buzz, along with some crowd favorites.
The world may now know all about John Waters’ recent health issues, but not everything is going wrong for the famed Baltimore author and filmmaker.
While serving jury duty recently, I noticed, in the jury duty waiting room, one of those City Paper “Best of Baltimore” plaques. Jury duty had been named Baltimore’s “Best Free Air Conditioning and a Movie. ” Ha. Looking around, it seemed unlikely that any of my fellow less-than-enthusiastic-potential-jurors had been polled for that vote. And yeah, it’s hot outside. I know. But when the sun goes down and the air cools off a bit, Baltimore’s many outdoor summer movie screenings are (in the opinion of this citizen) some of the best bets for summer entertainment that celebrates the season while not requiring you to melt/burn/coat-your-entire-body-in-500-spf-sunblock. And my favorite of the bunch? AVAM’s Flicks from the Hill.
