April 1st marked the date of Parallax’s Baltimore premiere at the historic Charles Theatre, located in the arts district of downtown Baltimore.
The team’s involvement with the city actually began much earlier in the day as our director Graham Nolte was able to reunite with his former high school video production teacher Jim Mahjoubian for a special day of lectures around Baltimore city schools discussing the creation of Parallaxand addressing their questions regarding how to get their work seen. Following the tour of these schools, it was time to show the film to Baltimore audiences.
The night began with a reception of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, hosted by local restaurant Tapas Teatro inside the atrium of the theatre. As guests enjoyed these delicacies, they were also invited to mingle with our director Graham Nolte and supporting actor Rodney Bonds, before having their pictures taken on the red carpet.
At 7:30 PM, the guests began filing into the theater to experience Parallax. The quaint atmosphere of the Charles Theatre brought an intimate vibe to the audience member’s experience and added a diverse notch to Parallax’s theatrical exhibition journey. The night was full of delectable food, eclectic company, and the unique opportunity for entertainment. The premiere brought new and old friends together for an enjoyable night in the heart of Baltimore. Next stop: The Anthology Film Archive in NYC.
