Located adjacent to the Mayfair Theatre, and built on the site of the Academy of Music. The Stanley Theatre was Baltimore’s largest theatre, opened on September 23, 1927 with Billie Dove in “The Stolen Bride”. The Stanley Theatre was coldly beautiful. It felt remarkably like an overdecorated railroad station, and despite its grandeur was never overwhelmingly popular or successful.
It was taken over by Morris Mechanic in February 1958 and was renamed Stanton Theatre on April 30, 1959. It screened its last film in March 1965, and following a month long run of the stage version of the musical “Oliver”, it finally closed on April 17, 1965. It was demolished in July 1965.
The spot where once the Stanley Theatre stood is now a parking lot.
