The Little Theatre was a unique theatre located at the edge of downtown Baltimore. It was located at Howard Street and Franklin Street. Opened on December 8, 1927. In 1929 it was operated by a local film society, and showed foreign films that were rarely shown in American film houses. The theatre provided a four page brochure program which highlighted the feature film along with the program itself.
Later it was run by Trans-Lux theatres and by the local chain JF. It ended its days showing video porn flicks, closing in 1989.
It literally was a little theatre, including the screen! Many of the films shown there have become recognized classics. These include “Grand Illusion” and “Blowup” (where it did tremendous business). In the 1970’s, due to the downtown area’s decline, it was renamed the Mayfair II. The “movie palace” Mayfair Theatre was directly across the street.
