Hey I thank you others for the historic stuff on this one and the Ambassador . They closed way before I was born but in this picture it has the Ben Franklin store 5 + dime and that was still there in the 60’s . Across the street in the 60’s was a super market . I recently heard that whole building was to be torn down for another Super Market . I did see the picture Brooklyn Jim said , its taken from Gwynn Oak ave with a trolley and you could see this theater in it

The Gwynn was still open for business in April, 1951. In the photo I mentioned yesterday, the marquee lists Bette Davis in “All About Eve.”

For a much more panoramic view of the 3rd pic down (left) on the site Lost Memory referenced, jump to my 6/18 comments on the Amabassador Theater site.

The Ambassador opened in 1935. The Gwynn did not close until the 1950s. The two theaters showed very different types of films. The Gwynn was the action house.
