More screens in Baltimore

BALTIMORE, MD — A new multiplex in Baltimore will suddenly add to Baltimore’s theater count while providing a new venue for arthouse fare. One can only hope this won’t affect the performance of some of the city’s older cinemas.

The number of movie screens within Baltimore is set to practically double, with the planned Nov. 2 opening of a seven-screen theater in Harbor East, the burgeoning neighborhood between the Inner Harbor and Fells Point.

The 1,300-seat facility, to be operated by Los Angeles-based Landmark Theatres, will be part of a 35,000-square-foot commercial and residential complex at Aliceanna and President streets. Its opening will increase the number of theater screens within the city’s borders to 15, including five at the Charles, two at the Rotunda Cinematheque and the single-screen Senator.

Let’s hope the Senator survives, despite this new competitor!

What concerns me about the Senator survival is the mention of mainstream programming at this Landmark. They should stick to their usual art house fare. If the Senator ever closes becuase of Landmark, I’ll never patronize them again, even if they’re the only place in town booking exclusives.
