Information for this tour was contributed by Daniel Gibbs.
This was in its day where the "class" audiences of Baltimore went to the movies; it's very close to the stylish Guilford and Peabody Heights/Charles Village neighborhoods. Unfortunately it's close to some less desirable sections as well and it was just too big, with 1500 seats, to survive in the modern age. Some of the theatre is still there but part of the main floor has been cut up into stores.
An article in the 8/4/1989 edition of The Baltimore Sun reported this theatres closing. The first film that played here was reportedly "A Man's Home" and the last were "Ghostbusters II" and "Lethal Weapon 2".
