Baltimore’s Grand Theatre

posted by Thomas on October 9, 2003 at 10:51 am

The word was the Grand Theatre here in Baltimore was to come down this fall, and they have been busy working to get the entire block ready for the wrecking ball. This was one of Baltimore’s surviving theatres into the 1980’s, and it’s a shame to see it go. (It shows up in several John Waters films.) One a better note, they finished up the Patterson Community Center (AKA Patterson Theatre) to the West of the Grand, complete with a new vertical marquee.

BTW, while the Grand Theatre is not listed on Cinema Treasures, here’s a list of other Baltimore theaters.

They said it was to be torn down “ this fall”. I’ll check the site in the coming weeks and advise all.
