NOW OR NEVER
Halloween traditions take center stage at the Phoenix Shot Tower on Saturday. This is a less spooky approach to the stories of the holiday, as all readings take place during afternoon hours, when it is still light out. The stories, which are being read in the tower, cover the origins of Halloween and ghosts, as well as works by Poe and other famed scary writers.
The Phoenix Shot Tower is at 801 Fayette St., across from the Main Post Office. Readings start at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Admission is $1 per person. For more information, call 410-605-2964.
Starting Sunday, the Jewish Museum of Maryland will offer the exhibit Entertaining America: Jews, Movies and Broadcasting, which examines the role of Jews in shaping American movies, radio and TV. The exhibit, which covers American entertainment starting with silent films and ending with Seinfeld, was organized by the Jewish Museum in New York and is making its only other East Coast stop in Baltimore.
The Jewish Museum of Maryland is at 15 Lloyd St. Admission to the opening event, 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. The exhibit runs through Jan. 18. For more information, call Simone Ellin at 410-732-6400, Ext. 14.
