Previous Names: Gertrude McCoy Theatre
Located in the Easterwood neighborhood. The Gertrude McCoy Theatre was opened October 30, 1915, named after the silent film actress. Apparently she had fallen out of fashion by 1927 as the name was changed to the Fulton Theatre that year.
The Fulton Theatre closed on March 2, 1952 and was standing for many years and was in great shape. The Fulton Theatre was a great example of early movie house design, with the front façade as a giant arch flanked on each side by Ionic pillars.
The old Fulton Theatre still has the supports for the vertical marquee. The theatre was converted into a food market, but like as many other Baltimore theatres, since 1973 it was being used as a church.
Above the old marquee and along the top of the theatre the heads of the lions and gothic figures still remained intact. Following a fire in 2007, the roof collapsed and the building became a derelict wreck. It was demolished in February 2017.
