Senator Theatre Re-Opens!



It’s been quite a journey for the Senator Theatre, one of my favorite (and few remaining) old-style movie houses left in the Baltimore area. First, it kind of ran out of money; then, its previous owner really didn’t want to relinquish control; then, it was unclear who would take possession — and even if they’d keep showing films in the theater. But we can file all that aside in our “past drama” folders; the Senator is open once more after a year-and-a-half of renovations. And I couldn’t be happier.

The Senator Theatre Will Reopen in October

October is going to be such a great month in Baltimore:  not only will we be able to once again visit the Poe Museum, we’ll also be able to catch a movie at the Senator Theatre for the first time since last spring.

Senator Theatre Sold to Current Operators


The sale of the historic Senator Theatre on York Road to its current operators, James “Buzz” Cusack and Kathleen Lyon, for $500,000 is all but complete. It just needs to be approved by Baltimore’s Board of Estimates today.
