The Baltimore Museum of Art's First Thursday film series, lovingly shepherded for the past two years by Maryland Film Festival programmer Eric Allen Hatch, offers its last hidden gem next week: Swedish director Lukas Moodysson's 2000 Together, the story of a houseful of counterculture types searching for common ground through which they can relate to one another - or at least keep living together under the same roof. This last offering from the free film series screens at 8 p.m. Thursday at the BMA, 10 Art Museum Drive. Information (and a chance to lobby BMA officials to reconsider ending the series): artb ma.org or 443-573-1700.
FOR THE RECORD - A photo caption in yesterday's Movies Today section contained incorrect information about a screening of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb at The Charles Theatre. There will be no host for the screening.
The Sun regrets the errors.
