Ground Floor premiere

Critic's choice: Film

September 26, 1999|By Ann Hornaday

The Fells Point Creative Alliance will inaugurate its new performance and screening space on Oct. 7 with a screening of Lydia Douglas' "Nappy." The documentary, an examination of African-American women's relationship with their hair, will be shown at Ground Floor (the former Daily Grind building), 1726 Thames St.

Alliance director Megan Hamilton is confident that the move from the group's former space, the Lodge in Highlandtown, will be good for the weekly performance series, which will now take place Thursdays instead of Fridays.

"It's a nice opportunity to reach out to people with a more accessible location," she said. "We're still committed to Highlandtown, and we'll be back in Highlandtown when the Patterson Center opens in 2001. Hopefully we'll get a bigger following and we'll drag them all to Highlandtown in a year."

Information about Alliance events can be obtained by calling 410-276-1651.
