About THE BIG BANG THEORY: Comedy has Expanded to 5 Nights a Week (check www.BigBangWeeknights.com for local listings)! The Big Bang Theory is the story of two brainy best friends who could tell you anything you want to know about quantum physics – but when it comes to dealing with everyday life here on Earth, they’re lost in the cosmos. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) are brilliant physicists – wizards in the laboratory, but socially inept outside of it. Enter their beautiful, free-spirited neighbor, Penny (Kaley Cuoco), who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. While Leonard spends his days looking for love, Sheldon is quite content video-chatting with platonic partner Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) or playing Star Trek 3D chess with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow Caltech scientists Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), and Howard’s new wife, the adorable microbiologist Bernadette (Melissa Rauch). www.BigBangWeeknights.com

How our celebrity events work
Our very popular series of celebrity events includes a table in our lobby where you can briefly meet the stars of some of your favorite films for autographs and or posed photographs with them for a fee.
These events are heavily attended and we always suggest that you arrive early. Celebrities are generally scheduled to arrive one hour prior to the first showing of their film unless otherwise stated – please see schedule above. They may or may not be available to the public after a screening so we always suggest that you purchase a souvenir and meet them prior to entering the auditorium. Your early arrival also helps ensure that you can enjoy the widest selection of seats when you watch the film. You must have purchased an admission ticket or a Hollywood Cinema gift card (minimum of $15) to get in the line to meet our special guests.
Depending on the length of the line and scheduling, our guest may entertain questions from the audience and introduce the film from the stage but this is entirely discretionary and varies from event to event. Some of our guests make an extraordinary effort to ensure a great experience, and this may back up the seating for later show times.
In most instances, there is a charge per autograph – that signature can come on an 8×10 photograph provided by Hollywood Cinemas OR something of your own that you bring to the event.
We will have a professional photographer set up to take posed pictures with our guest. Tinseltown photo charges a fee for a glossy, instant print – pricing and sizing will be available closer to the event. This is the only way guests can take photos with our celebrity host. We do not allow pictures of our special guest with your own camera after a certain point in line.
We do take credit cards and there is also an ATM on premise.

Free Comic Book Day 2013 is just around the corner and Cards, Comics & Collectibles – Baltimore’s Premiere Comic Book Store and the Official News Source of the Baltimore Comic-Con – is pulling out all of the stops for this year’s event! Everyone has been wondering what we were going to do and we’re finally ready to announce it! This is the one you’ve been waiting for!
The full-day event kicks off with an awesome line-up of creators appearing at the store! Adam Kubert, Frank Cho, and Steve Conley will be all signing and sketching at the store throughout the day.
Legendary Marvel and DC Comics artist Adam Kubert, whose most recent work includes Marvel’s Avengers vs. X-Men event and the recently launched Avengers series, will be signing and sketching from 12:00pm – 2:30pm, and again from 3:30pm – 6:00pm. He is the featured artist in DC’s Free Comic Book Day 2013 issue, Superman: The Last Son of Krypton #1.
The son of comics legend, Joe Kubert, Adam started his illustrious career in comics in 1993 drawing Wolverine for Marvel Comics. He was a mainstay at Marvel, working on such titles as X-Men, Ultimate X-Men, and Ultimate Fantastic Four, until 2005 when he signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics. While there, he served as artist on Action Comics, DC Universe: Last Will and Testament, and Batman and The Outsiders Special. In 2009, he returned to Marvel where he remains today.
Frank Cho’s body of work at Marvel includes such titles as New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Shanna the She-Devil, New Ultimates, X-Men: Schism, and Avengers vs. X-Men. He is also well-known for his creator-owned series, Liberty Meadows, and his work on Jungle Girl for Dynamite Entertainment. Cho, who is currently writing and drawing Savage Wolverine, will be signing and sketching from 4:00pm – 6:00pm.
Award-winning designer, illustrator, and cartoonist Steve Conley has worked on such notable comics as Star Trek: Year Four (IDW), Michael Chabon’s Amazing Adventures of the Escapist (Dark Horse Comics), and JLA-Z (DC Comics). Conley, who is also the creator of Astounding Space Thrills and the all-ages series Bloop (www.bloopstree.com), will be signing and sketching all day.
In addition to the creator line-up, Baltimore’s Z104.3 will be setting up and broadcasting live at the store.
