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.
