Options narrowed for Baltimore’s Senator Theater

BALTIMORE, MD — Two of the four proposals submitted for the Senator Theater have been rejected. Of the two remaining, one would keep the nearly 75-year-old cinema going as a movie house and add two restaurants; the other envisions making it a performing arts venue and home to a public radio station.

The BDC plans to ask for more detailed financial information on the two remaining proposals, Clark said, before deciding between them.

A 10-member review committee, including many residents of the surrounding neighborhoods, had been studying the proposals since they were submitted in December, and those from Cusack and Towson were the clear favorites, Clark said. “They really are making an attempt at digging deep into these proposals,” she said. “This is at the heart of their community. They care a ton.”

The committee, which is scheduled to begin meeting again next month, could recommend one proposal over the other, Clark said, or leave that decision up to the BDC. A final decision on the Senator’s future could be made as early as March, she said.
