Courtesy Bmore Media – What happens when Jimmy Joe Roche and Dan Deacon, two of Baltimore’s most prominent artists, curate a film series that takes moviegoers back in time?

The resulting brainchild is the film series Gunky’s Basement, now in its third year. An outgrowth of the annual Maryland Film Festival, Gunky’s Basement highlights a single film from the 80s and 90s each month from fall to spring. And the movies aren’t the only throwback in film history: Each movie is shown in its original, 35-millimeter format in an age when theaters now universally rely on digital projection.

The $5 screenings take place on a full-sized cinema screen at the Charles Theater — not a basement — and draw between 250 to 300 movie buffs. Some movies are well known classics like “Silence of the Lambs” or “Alien.” Other selections, such as Jim Jarmusch’s “Dead Man” starring Johnny Depp, are more esoteric.

0

Courtesy of Citybizlist – My name is Robert Karpay. I’m a composer living in Brooklyn, NY, originally from Baltimore, MD. Three years ago, cellist Ben Capps premiered my Cello Concerto, a piece for solo cello and small orchestra. Now, Ben has asked me to write him a solo piece to be recorded on his upcoming album, “Cello Horizons.” The piece is in four movements and is a musical depiction of memories I have from growing up in Baltimore, MD. Ben and I have decided to premiere the piece in Baltimore. I intend on using a Kickstarter campaignto raise money for the official commissioning of the piece as well as the documentation and release of my piece, Charm City Cello Sonata on the album, “Cello Horizons.”

See the full Kickstarter campaign here.

Robert will be speaking this Tuesday, April 24 at 12:55 p.m. at the Baltimore School for the Arts.
