Some know it as a space that screened really, really cool movies. Others know it as one of the few concert venues in Frederick where bands could truly be themselves. To its owner, Mike Peters, it’s a place to store movie equipment sometimes rented out to those who needed it.
It’s Area 31, and it’s closing in a few months after nearly a decade in operation. Find the story in this week’s 72 Hours.

Join us tonight at 8 for what Roger Ebert called "as nasty as it is lubricious, a despicable attempt to titillate us by exploiting memories of persecution and suffering," and what a critic for the The New York Times - Science referred to as "romantic pornography" and "a piece of junk". Presenting Charlotte Rampling and Dirk Bogarde in Italian female Writer/Director Lilliana Cavani's controversial classic, The Night Porter, part of Cinemondays East's spring season

72 Film Fest

Check out a teaser for the 2018 72 Film Fest project: THE BLACK HILLS NIGHT HIKE. Filmmakers and teams will have a chance to be a part of the horror anthology!

Early next year, filmmakers (and teams) will be invited to participate in our Second Feature Film project: THE BLACK HILLS NIGHT HIKE. Conceived by 72 Film Fest participant Nickolas Jackson from Sailorjack Pictures (Year 1, 2, 4), this horror anthology will focus on many of the monster myths and urban legends local to Maryland. Full details will be revealed early next year, but if you’re interested, head to 72Fest.com and SIGN UP to THE BLACK HILLS NIGHT HIKE email list to get first info.

Our goal is to market this anthology beyond the 72 Film Fest. While there will be a deadline in the Spring, there will be no 72 Hour limit for the films.
