Maryland is in Stage Three of Governor Hogan's Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery plan.  Film and television production is allowed in the State.  Filming in Maryland provides information on reopening guidance for the film industry in correlation with the COVID-19 pandemic.

    While staying Safer at Home, it's a great time to watch a ​Made-in-Maryland movie or show, support a local film festival (the Virtual Utopia Film Festival / Oct 17-26 or the Virtual Wheaton Film Festival / Nov 14-15), support a local theater by purchasing a ticket to their virtual screening room,


    OR, if you really just need to get out of the house, visit the Charles Theatre during the month of October for their outdoor screenings, visit one of the "Pop-Up" Drive-in found across the State or visit Maryland's ONLY Drive-In Movie Theatre -  BENGIES in Middle River.

    So, you may be familiar with some of the Made-in-Maryland movies or shows, others you may not have realized were filmed in Maryland.  Whether you enjoy comedies like Wedding Crashers or Runaway Bride;  action films like Enemy of the State or Live Free or Die Hard;  independent films like Sollers Point or LUV;  award-winning series like House of Cards or The Wire;  Baltimore showcases like Avalon or Serial Mom;  family fare like Tuck Everlasting or Meteor Man;  or, if you just like to be scared by The Blair Witch Project or The Night Watchmen, watch something that was Made-in-Maryland.
