12 MAY 2016 / SNF Co-President, Andreas Dracopoulos visits the Parkway Theatre in Baltimore

SNF Co-President, Andreas Dracopoulos, accompanied by SNF Chief Operating Officer, Vasilis Tsamis, and SNF Director of Programs & Strategic, Stelios Vasilakis, visited the Parkway Theater in Baltimore to view the construction progress of the project. ‎

The SNF has committed $5 million to Johns Hopkins, enabling the university, the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Maryland Film Festival to transform Baltimore’s historic Parkway Theater into a center for the study, production and exhibition of film.

The new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Film Center will be a cinema showplace with three screens, 600 seats and live performance space. Scheduled to open in late 2016, it will help to anchor the Station North neighborhood’s developing role as a Baltimore arts destination, supporting cultural and economic growth in the area.
