Uploaded a few photos from the 80’s including the marquee from 1980 with The Empire Strikes Back. Saw a ton of movies here in the 70’s and 80’s including The Empire Strikes Back, Airplane, Superman 1+2, Scarface, Back to the Future, Weird Science, and Joysticks, lol. I want to say it closed in 1988 or 89.

seems like alot of theaters turn into churchs. and sometimes ones that shown porn before..

Refrost, 1988 is correct. Between UA Marley and Glen Burnie Town Center, GCC couldn’t compete. I think it was a dollar house in its very last days.

Ronnie, movie theatres are ideal candidates for conversion into churches: large rooms with good acoustics and room for plenty of seating. The Harlem in west Baltimore started out as a church, became a movie house, and reverted to a church. The State on Monument St. in east Baltimore became Pastor Naomi Durant’s church, and she made few changes to the auditorium (including the seats).

Yup, Empire Strikes back, Superman and all of the Disney movies my sister would take me to on Saturdays. Also saw Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter there and the audience (mostly high schoolers) talked and screamed during the whole thing. As much as that drives me crazy now, that was a really great communal experience.

Does anyone have any interior shots? I am curious as to how much of the original design remains intact. It is a very large building even for a twin.

I worked there in the middle 70s. I remember when the Exorcist was playing the line went down Aquahart rd. exciting times.

Josieclaws, I don’t suppose you have any pictures? I realize it’s not something we ever thought of, working at movie theaters. A shame we took it for granted. I wish I’d taken more of Harbor IX and Annapolis Mall myself.
