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

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.

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.

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).

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.
