Towson Commons 8

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1992 by General Cinema as a replacement for the Perring Plaza Twin and (eventually) the nearby York Road Twin. The theatre is located inside Towson Commons, a mini-mall that has seen better days. (Towson Commons itself is in the very center of the Towson commercial district.) It has two identical levels with four screens on each; screens 2 (lower level) and 6 (upper) are largest with 368 seats in each. The auditoriums are in GCC’s typical all-red color scheme of the late 1980’s-early-1990’s.

The lower-level lobby contains a display with a cinderblock that was removed from the Perring Plaza Twin prior to its demolition.

At one time during the mid-1990s GCC considered opening a bargain annex in the lower level of the mall (York Road Twin had been a dollar house in its last days), but that plan never materialized.

During the GCC era Towson Commons had exhibition clearance over the famous Senator Theatre, taking some key bookings away from that landmark house. After the AMC takeover, Towson Commons frequently shared mainstream films with the Senator Theatre.

The Recher Theater (formerly the Towson) is kitty-corner from Towson Commons, across the intersection of York Road and Pennsylvania Avenue. It was closed on May 15, 2011.
