Closed in 1988, to be exact. I believe it was run by F.H. Durkee Enterprises in its last days.

The Marley Station and Glen Burnie Towncenter theaters put Richie Cinemas and Harundale Cinemas out of business as everyone flocked to the fancy new theaters. I remember Richie playing a lot of trash movies in the end like Blood Diner and Meatballs 3.

Ritchie was also just about the only place on Earth to play the locally-produced “Blood Circus,” a wrestling movie. After the first week the title was changed to “Wrestling Circus,” no no avail. Marley and GBTC also affected Jumpers Hole 7 down the road a ways.

Wow, this was probably my favorite theater growing up. Ghostbusters, Temple of Doom, Rocky III, we saw everything there. A friend and I were actually at the very last screening there, they were showing Night of the Creeps (called “Homecoming Night” when it screened there) and we were the only people there. The seat cushions were all ripped up and there was a hole in the ceiling where water was pouring down in front of the screen because it was raining. Ahhh, good times.
