I hope along with the Hippodrome, I hope the Towne is also being restored. A suggestion for the city of Baltimore is to put a new roof on the Mayfair and mothball it until funds can be found to restore this theatre. Look at the Biltmore in NYC it was exposed to the elements for decades until its recent restoration. Brucec

I remember as a teenager growing up in Hagerstown, MD driving 70 miles to Baltimore to see “Cleopatra” at the Hippodrome. I was very impressed at the size of the theatre—I was an immediate fan of the Hipp. I believe that was 1963.

I believe the Mayfair with its collapsed roof may be beyond saving, but the Parkway is a different story. Please see www.parkwaytheatre.com

With “The Producers” coming to town, one would hope the Hipp would have a chance to shine again. However, with Ticketmaster charging a $4.50 facility fee AND and $9.50 ‘Convenience’ fee, on top of a $75.00 ticket (Hmmm, lets, see…can you say ‘fleece’?), the average schmo, like me, may be put off.

The Hippodrome is currently being completely restored top to bottom. It is a massive restoration effort that is underway. The final prognosis looks grand indeed.

It appears that the nearby TOWN theatre around the corner from the Hippodrome may also be saved. Plans are in the works to rebuild this fine theatre as well. Now if we can only save the Mayfair and Parkway Theatres !
