418 East Baltimore Street,
No one has favorited this theater yet
Today, the 400 block of East Baltimore Street is known only as “the Block”. The area has been unpopular with the local and state governments, but actually has quite a history for Baltimore movie theatres. One of Baltimore’s more popular movie houses was at 418 East Baltimore Street, the Rivoli Theatre.
Opened prior to 1912 as the Wilson Theatre. In 1920 it was enlarged and reopened as the Rivoli Theatre on January 3, 1921. It operated until 1954, when the theatre portion was torn down for a parking garage. The facade survived for years and was incorporated into “the Bloc”, but in the 1990’s, half of the 400 block of East Baltimore Street, including the facade of the Rivoli Theatre was torn down to make way for a government building.
Nothing left of a bygone favorite movie theatre.
