I don’t when they did the change over but all the screens are digital projection now. They still have the audio placards (DTS, Dolby Digital, SDDS) but since digital projection audio is LPCM it’s odd they retained them. I asked if any screen featured 7.1 but management said no, which is odd, since Dolby EX can easily been converted to playback 7.1

I saw Star Wars: Episode One The Phantom Menace here way back in ‘99. Like similar Hoyt multiplexes of this site, they had 2 BIG theaters and several smaller ones. The BIGGER auditoriums..some (I’m guessing 400-500 seat capacity with the bigger 50-60 ft screens) had Dolby EX.

When my friend passed away, I seldom, if ever went back to this place. The proliferation of gang-type crowds were a turn off.

I just read today that the place is for sale, along with its Hunt Valley counterpart. This facility supposedly is 75,000 sq. ft.

I HAVE BEEN TO THIS THEATER ABOUT 6 TIMES,BUT why,or why,are NEWER theaters being listed.Multiplexes are not in keeping with the spirit of this site’s origins,I thought.I wish there was a seperate listing,perhaps,for new theaters.i wish there was a seperate section for grand,old theaters that still show MOVIES,like the Byrd and Commodore.

Opened by Hoyts! That’s why the two huge screens.
