Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The Alert Theatre was located in Essex which is located on the Eastern border of Baltimore City. The Alert Theatre opened in the mid-1930’s seating just under 350. It lasted until television took its toll on the neighborhood house and it closed in the late-1950’s. The building is now used for retail.

The current occupant is a pawn shop called the Essex Jewelry Exchange.

If you try to map out Eastern Avenue, it automatically changes it to Eastern Boulevard, so the address in the description would be incorrect.

Eastern Avenue becomes Eastern Boulevard at the bridge over the Back River (a few blocks to the west). A mile or so east Old Eastern Ave. branches off from the main road; even further out Eastern Blvd. becomes Eastern Ave. Extended (in the Bengies Drive-In area).
