(Chris Kaltenbach, The Baltimore Sun) Director Barry Levinson and cast members from his breakthrough 1982 hit “Diner” will re-unite in Baltimore next month for conversations and screenings in celebration of the film’s 30th anniversary.
The centerpiece of the celebration will be a Dec. 10 appearance by Levinson and some cast members at Shriver Hall on the Johns Hopkins University. Leading up to that evening, “Diner” and Levinson’s other Baltimore-based films will be shown beginning Nov. 23 at the Charles Theatre and on the Hopkins campus.
Proceeds from the celebration will benefit the Maryland Film Festival. Festival officials said they have yet to finalize the list of which cast members will be attending.
Baltimore native Levinson wrote and directed “Diner,” which tells the story of a group of friends living in Baltimore’s Liberty Heights neighborhood who come together for the marriage of one of them.
