Park Heights Avenue had several old movie theatres, including the Avalon Theatre, the Uptown Theatre and the Pimlico Theatre. The Avalon Theatre was located in the 4300 block of Park Heights Avenue, just south of West Cold Spring Lane. It opened April 16, 1926. It was equipped with a 2 manual Kimball organ.

The theatre was noted for it’s outstanding facade. The front of the theatre was lined with windows and adorned with sunburst faces above each window. Large columns seperated each window.

The Avalon Theatre was closed in November 1963. It was then used as radio studios from March 1967 and later as a chruch, before it was finally abandoned in 1987. The entire block of Park Heights was torn down in 1997.

The Avalon was for some years the “studio” of Baltimore’s original UHF Channel 24, which went off the air circa 1970. The building remained vacant until its demise.
