Thanks. I havenâ€™t been able to locate a directory of the Eastern Federal theatres and was hoping that one would have come available at the time Regal took them over. Maybe someone could check with the main library in the Jackson Beach area.

Perfect! Thanks! I did not realize that the Grove was wide enough to support a full Cinemascope presentation.
You can upload them onto Flickr and include them in the Georgia Theatre Group.

Per Courtnerkin in Flickr “It was initially a single screen cinema called Cinema One. It was twinned by placing a sound wall down the center of the auditorium and downsizing the screens. I think this occurred about 1984. I’m pretty sure I saw Empire Strikes Back there prior to the twinning. After it was twinned, it was called Cinema Twin. In about 1994 under new management, it was renamed Cheri. Following another management change it became the Campus Twin before going under.”
Here and here are photos of the cinema from March 2008.
Only what the current proprietor told me this past Saturday.
A great amount of money and effort has been lost by individuals who are attempting to restore and reopen the Parkway only to be stymied by the local government who would rather raze the theatre and use the land for other purposes. The current owner could really use some concerted help from the citizens of Baltimore in overcoming the bureaucratic roadblocks the city is putting up to prevent saving this magnificent piece of architecture.

There is a vacant, one story building at this address which is slated to be demolished in order for condominiums to be built on the site. This building is rather non-descript and does not have any features which suggest that it might have once been a cinema.
