Senator Theatre - Baltimore, MD

We remember writing about the Senator a few years ago on our previous website. At that time financial difficulties put the future of this Art Deco theatre into jeopardy. Things went down to the wire. Through a combination of donations from the community and loans the theatre avoided closure.

Maryland Daily Record writer Liz Farmer recalls past challenges the theatre faced in her recent article. She outlines what the theatre is up against this time, as financial difficulties have put it in danger of closing again.

At times classic theatres and diners both find themselves in the way of development and progress. In some opinions, these gems of the roadside have long outlasted their purpose. A single screen theatre such as the Senator is replaced by a multi or a mega screen venture. Diners on the other hand are typically replaced by a non-food service chain businesses.

We'll monitor the situation of the Senator and post here as information becomes available. Meanwhile Liz Farmer's in depth article may be read here.
