& Film

With one of the best sounding rooms in the region, the theater at Creative Alliance has gained a reputation for shows that are equally energetic and intimate. Our stage is a lynchpin of Baltimore’s cultural scene, and our performances are known for their quality and eclecticism. We take risks and always strive for a richer, deeper experience. Our programming celebrates a sense of place, be it Baltimore’s own artistic accents or performers celebrating sounds and styles from afar.

Our versatile space is a great place for a dance party or a seated show. A growing force on the national touring circuit, Creative Alliance embraces  programming that runs from global music spanning traditional roots and innovative new artists, the diverse spectrum of Black American music, indie rock, dance, theater, burlesque, and comedy, as well as a rapidly expanding digital program. No matter who you’ve come to see, you can pretty much guarantee the bar will be open, the crowd diverse, and you’ll be close to the action. We look forward to seeing you!

Film Programming


Creative Alliance presents new work by international, national, and local filmmakers. We also lend support and vital resources to Baltimore’s thriving independent filmmaking community with workshops, career development, and places for filmmakers to gather, meet one another, and share their passions.

Independent Features

Baltimore’s indie film scene is bustling with talent, and we are proud of every opportunity we get to be the first to share a film with the world. From rom-coms to action films, experimental to slasher flicks, we’ve screened it. Some of our favorite annual celebrations of Baltimore filmmakers include the 29 Days Later Film Project and the Best of Baltimore Student Film Festival. We also showcase the best independent features and art films from around the world, chosen for their historic importance or unique artistic qualities.

Opening the door for audiences to learn more about issues affecting them or simply to understand each other a little better, the art of documentary filmmaking is thriving both locally and around the world. Creative Alliance is often able to invite the filmmakers and/or the people you’ve just seen on screen for Q&As or receptions.

Interactive Movie Nights

Your favorite cult movies become wild games…and we make the rules! Dress like your favorite characters, sing along, shout the lines, play games, sip themed drink specials, and win stuff! Some of our past favorites have been Die Hard, Coming to America, The Goonies, and of course, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW!
