News About This Theater

Roslyn Theater

Originally built in 1870 as Lehmann Hall, it was remodeled several times; in 1910 by Wyyatt & Nolting, in 1913 by Walter E. Gieske. The hall was used for functions.

Once a part of a small chain of theaters in the Baltimore area operated by Louis and Rosalyn Shecter. It opened in October 1941 as a movie theatre, known as the Roslyn Theater. By the late-1940’s it was operated by the Zeller Circuit. It was closed in May 1956. It was torn down for an expansion of Maryland General Hospital.

Mrs. Shecter passed away recently; according to her obituary, this theater was named for her by her husband, although her first name is spelled ‘Rosalyn’.
