"Cinema Sundays at the Charles, the Film Lovers Club" opens its 10th series today at the Charles Theatre in Baltimore with "Earth Voyage to Yesteryears," nine short travel films created by James Fitzpatrick in Technicolor between 1933 and 1968. The director's son, James Fitzpatrick Jr., will introduce the film and lead a post-screening discussion.

Films are shown Sunday mornings, and each screening is accompanied by a guest speaker. The program begins with brunch at 10 a.m., followed by the screening at 10: 30 a.m.

Due to contractual arrangements with the distributors, the titles of most films cannot be revealed until the day of the screening.

The series includes eight films. A full membership for all programs is $96, or $80 for renewals from the previous series. Also available is a membership package of four dates of your choice for $65, or $50 for the four screenings if you're renewing. All members receive a benefit package, worth a minimum of $100, that includes free passes to the Charles, invitations to preview screenings at other theaters, and discounts at restaurants, cafes, art galleries, video stores and theaters. Individual tickets are $15 at the door. Call (410) 366-8675.
