Orbit Baltimore

pre-show in Baltimore




The Charles Theater lobby - great place, and already has stars in it



The old Baltimore & Ohio Railroad office bldg, complete with statue of Mercury and possibly Atlas




Thanks so much to The Maryland Film Festival: Jed, Eric, Scott and Rahne for bringing the films to Charm City.

Kickstarter Campaign / Astronaut Society launched

Success! Thanks to everyone for joining and helping us get the Orbitfilms out to theaters.

The OAAS always takes members, join and get weird space merch, like an actual call from space. Also normal things like stickers, posters, shirts and a DVD of the films. 40 mil will get you a trip to space where you can watch the films personally (DVD free at that level).

kickass theatrical poster made by Our Man in Krakow -- Adrian Kolarczyk

new/old poster


When I was seven our neighbors gave us some polaroids of their trip to Cape Canaveral (I'm assuming) from years before. They were great folks - but why would you ever give up this amazing portrait??

Krakow, Poland

home of Copernicus! Unfortunately it was too rainy outside so all 4 shows were in the nice art house, ARS. The building the theater is in is older than cinema, built in the 18th century.





Most of the crowds know english, between that and the Polish subtitles, both the serious and the comedy parts seemed to work.

Copernicus went to school there in the late 1400s and started his writings, studying science in the school of arts (thus our main metaphor). However he didn't graduate!
