Casa de Maryland breaks ground on new education and jobs center in McElderry Park

The towering box of a building at 2706 Pulaski Highway once housed the historic Belnord Theater—one of the city’s only non-segregated places to catch a movie during the mid-20th century.

After the theater closed in 1965, it went on to host a grocery store, and more recently served as an all-ages punk music venue.

Soon, it’ll be repurposed with a new mission: a hub serving Baltimore’s immigrant population. Casa de Maryland, the immigrant-advocacy nonprofit with an office in East Baltimore and headquarters in Takoma Park, is planning a nearly $14 million renovation of the space to turn it into an education and employment center after outgrowing its present space, located several blocks away at 2224 E. Fayette St.
