Baltimore Loves Outdoor Movies

Summer means outdoor activities in Crab Town, and they don’t stop when the sun goes down. At 800 Key Highway, just down from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, is the American Visionary Art Museum. It’s a destination in itself, but on two more Thursdays – July 13 and July 27 - they add films to the art already outside. From 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. the AVAM shows classic films and the price is right…Free! Bring a blanket and a picnic, and enjoy “Strictly Ballroom” on the 13th, and “West Side Story” on the 27th.

Looking for something with an Italian accent? Then head to High Street on Friday evenings at 7:00 p.m. where you’ll find The Little Italy Open-Air Film Festival. This annual Cinema al Fresco is hosted by The Little Italy Restaurant Association during July and August. Dinner and a free movie – sounds like a great Friday evening. Click here for the full schedule.

Feel like an old-fashioned drive-in movie? Head over to Eastern Avenue where, for 50 years, Bengies has been a fixture. They show triple features on Friday and Saturday nights, and boast the biggest movie screen on the East Coast. It’s a blast from the past for sure.

It looks like a wonderful weekend coming up – warm bright days and cool evenings. Get out and enjoy it!
