July 26: Not Just a Game Virtual Screening

3-4:15 p.m. Free.

Although most Baltimoreans tend to focus on our beloved Orioles and Ravens, many don’t know about ice hockey’s influence on Charm City youth. This weekend, the Peale Center is hosting the virtual premiere of the documentary, Not Just A Game: The Story of Savage. The film tells the story of an East Baltimore hockey team, The Banners, and follows one player as he navigates his first season on and off the ice. After the viewing, producers with Just Stunt Productions will hold a panel to discuss the film with those that tune in. Make sure to RSVP on the Peale Center’s website to receive access to the screening the morning of the event.
