The Fayette Theater opened in early-1917. It was equipped with a Kimball organ in 1923. It was closed in 1924 and converted into a bowling alley until 1931.

It was purchased by Leon Zeller of the Zeller Circuit and was remodeled, reopening as the Roxy Theater in October 1932. It was closed in 1957. The building is currently home to a church.

The October 7, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World had this item:

“New Theater Proposed.

“Baltimore. Md. — Plans were filed with building inspector J. J. Byrne, by Louis Helldorfer, on Friday, September 15th, for a moving picture theater to be located at 2239-43 East Fayette street. Mr. Helldorfer states that he expects the structure to cost in the neighborhood of $10,000 when it is completed.”

Plans being filed on September 15 means the small house could have been completed before the end of 1916, and was probably open by early 1917 at the latest.
