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.

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 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.
