Pikes Theatre in Pikesville hasn’t shown a film in nearly 30 years. But Ira Miller (who runs Rotunda Cinemas) is “a true believer in neighborhood theaters.” So, after some renovations, it’s back — starting today.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the revived two-screen cinema will run an even mix of blockbusters and art-house fare. Today, patrons will get to choose between the box-office-record-smashing space thriller Gravity in 3D and a documentary on the traditional Jewish song “Hava Nagila” called Hava Nagila. So far, so good.

Throw in the re-opening of The Senator in Towson and Maryland Film Festival’s deal with Baltimore City to bring back Station North’s Parkway Theatre, and it’s starting to look like we may be on the cusp of a film renaissance!

By the way, the building will continue to house a restaurant (as it has in one form or another since 1997), Pikes Cinema Bar & Grill.
