The Apex Theatre showed X rated films from 1972 until its closing at the end of November 2013. Fells Point also had the Leader Theatre, the Broadway Theatre and the Cluster Theatre.

The Apex Theatre opened on July 1, 1942 with “Remember Pearl Harbor”, and while it is not the most attractive theatre to settle on Broadway, it is the only one that has survived.

The Apex is trying to get out of showing movies ( 2005 ) and show live strip shows. There was a lot of talk about it in Dec 2004, and no word as to what will happen. The article did mention that the Fell’s Point Area finds the Apex a good neighbor, even with them showing porn.

A great book has been published on all of Baltimores theaters, called “Motion Picture Exhibition In Baltimore” by Robert K. Headley. Borders has it. There is a great shot of the Cluster here. It’s unbelievable how many theaters Baltimore had at one time-and look at it now. The Apex must be one of the last porn theaters in the country.It doesn’t advertise in City Paper any longer-wonder if it’s closed.

The Apex DID try showing mainstream movies, circa 1981, as a bargain house. That didn’t last very long, and they went back to smut.

Chuck, that 7-Eleven has been there for at least 25 years.
