In the course of its three-year lifetime, Cinema Sundays at the Charles has become a staple for film fans. Another season wraps up on June 21. Cinema Sundays founder (and cinephile extraordinaire) George Udel will return Sept. 13 with another 10-week program that combines bagels, coffee and conversation with previews and exclusive showings of noteworthy films.
Members usually pack the Sunday morning ritual, but go to the Charles at 9:45 a.m. to see if single tickets are available. Next Sunday, June 14, Cinema Sundays presents "Detention," written and directed by Baltimore filmmaker Darryl LeMont Wharton. Wharton's feature debut has already played to enthusiastic audiences at a number of festivals. "Detention," which Wharton describes as an "urban 'Breakfast Club,' "traces a day in the life of five high school students who are held after class by a tough and caring teacher. Wharton will introduce "Detention" and answer questions after the 10:30 a.m. screening.
