The Charles is Baltimore’s oldest theater and, fittingly, it has the ambience and feel of a bygone era. Screenings of Hollywood classics like King Kong raise the nostalgia factor, but the Charles shows plenty of new movies, independents, documentaries, and foreign films as well. Cinéastes and Francophiles should take particular note of “La Cinémathéque”, a free French cineclub that meets every month to screen a new French film.  Each May, the theater hosts the annual Maryland Film Festival.
