Photos of the Grand Theater

posted by Patrick Crowley on December 8, 2003 at 9:21 am

Ed Dobbins sent in a few pictures of the soon-to-be-demolished Grand Theater in Baltimore, Maryland:

“The last picture shows some of the water damage inside. It’s very sad to see it go. The last movie I saw there when I was in high school was Return of the Jedi in Feb. 1984, no heat and a wind chill of -10 outside (and I was drinking a soda…… The last movie I believe that played there was Footloose — to coincide with the video release (I found that strange).”

There have been various proposals over the years: Concert hall/Night club, Art house with small movie/video production services…etc, but none seemed to stick. It’s far too late to be saved, the whole block pictured it coming down for the library. I may avoid the area when the demolition starts, don’t want to see it being torn down.
