Little Italy at the corner of High St. and Stiles St.
Every Friday night of July and August, enjoy a free film presented in Little Italy. The Open Air Film Festival has been a hit since 1999 and continues to thrive this year. This festival features classics, like The Godfather II and La Dolce Vita, to recent hits like Eat, Pray, Love and To Rome with Love. The films are projected onto the outside wall of Ciao Bella Restaurant in the Da Mimmo Ristorante parking lot, so be sure to bring a comfortable lawn chair. You want to get there early too to ensure you get the best spot for the viewing of the film. The event is free and open to all members of the public. Plus, you can get free popcorn as you watch the film! Starting at 7pm, there will be live music playing and then promptly at 9pm the film will begin. For the perfect Friday night on the town, you should head down to Little Italy for a delicious meal, then live music and a free film!

Creative Alliance at the Patterson
An artform born and raised here in good ol’ Bawlmore, Screen Painting is celebrating its 100th birthday (hey, that’s 10 times more than us!). To celebrate this unique and beautiful art form, the film The Screen Painters will be shown at the Creative Alliance at the Patterson. In short, homeowners would commission screen painters to create intricate designs on the doors of local homes so that passersby could not see in. Following the film will be a discussion with cinematographer Richard Chilsom and other scholars. The film is $12 dollars and will also feature the premiere of the film Little Castles – a film on Baltimore’s Formstone. Be sure to join the Creative Alliance again on Saturday, June 22nd for a tour of the Painted Screens of East Baltimore, costings $35. This event, unique to Baltimore, is one you certainly do not want to miss.
