Early peek at Landmark

October 19, 2007|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,Sun Reporter

The Landmark Theatres Harbor East will host an invitation-only benefit screening Oct. 30, offering friends and supporters of the Baltimore School for the Arts the chance to sample Charm City's newest movie showplace three days before its official opening.

Although finishing touches have yet to be added to the building at Aliceanna and President streets, plans still call for the seven-screen theater to open to the public Nov. 2. But don't expect a big, splashy opening night.

A Landmark spokesman said no festivities are planned, though some CDs and swag associated with the opening-night movies will be given away. The opening-night film lineup has yet to be set.

"There are no bells and whistles set for [that] Friday," said Tim Richardson of Baltimore-based Maroon PR. "It's basically just, `We're open. Come on in.'"

The Landmark theaters, whose opening will nearly double the number of movie screens in Baltimore, represent the first new moviehouse construction in the city since the expansion of the Charles from one screen to five screens in 1999.
