Orignally opened in 1966 with “What Did You Do In The War Daddy?”. This was a typical GCC single screen theater. It had the typical shadow box screen very common with GCC theaters. In the early-1970’s it was twinned down the middle and made two nice theaters. Once UA purchased the SamEric chain, the theater didn’t last very long. I am not sure exactly what year it closed.

The most I can tell you is it was on Baltimore Pike next to the Bazzar which was torn down many years ago.
