Kilduff’s.Net Theatre Listing

Index of Maryland Movie Theatres ( This includes all Maryland counties. )
Recently Brought over from Kilduffs.Com to Kilduffs.net

Sources are the Film Daily Yearbook’s, Baltimore Street Guides, Arrow Street Guides, old newspaper ads, and of course Exit and  Motion Picture Exhibition in Baltimore by Dr. Robert Headley. For those of you from the D.C. area of Maryland, try “Motion Picture Exhibition in Washington D.C.”, by Dr. Headley and finally for a Maryland guide, “Maryland’s Motion Picture Theatres”. Dr. Headley’s books are a wealth of information regarding movie theatres in Maryland. For  African American Theatre Buildings, try the book by Eric Ledell Smith which covers the whole Country. His books mentioned a few theatres I had to further research and added to the list. The Sanborn Insurance maps are a great source, but are released in limited years so if a small theatre opens up and doesn’t survive long, it could be missed by us. The Film Daily Almanacs are also a great source, but we are missing a year or two in out collection, and we have found a few errors there as well. Old newspaper ads are a great source to show a theatre was operating in a certain year, but many theatres didn’t post ads or used other local advertising which we haven’t found.
For the Baltimore Maryland area, Kilduff’s is simply intended as a tour of the City and a look at the theatre buildings and locations of theatres between the years 1900 and 1950, and how they have fared throughout the years. It is amazing how many theatre buildings have survived the years, although very few are still used as movie theatres.

“Theater names” are as many names that the theaters were known as,  through the years,  that I could find listed. Movie Theaters tended to change names often, so you could open the same theater under several names. The ” Opened ” and “Closed” dates are those that I found references to , namely the Opera Houses, and are not exact – The web site is ALWAYS BEING UPDATED
Addresses tend to change over the years. In fact, some street names may have changed as well. I have done the best I can with street addresses, but you might find a completely different street name or address if you search.
“Opened” days are when there are first year listed in the Film Daily Yearbook. “Closed” dates are when they are no longer listed. In the 1950’s, the Film Daily Yearbook stopped listing individual theatres, so the dates are a bit vague. See Dr. Headley’s book ” Exit “or his book ”  Motion Picture Exhibition in Baltimore ” for exact dates.  If the “Closed” date is in red,  the building , or most of it has been razed since it was closed.

Some of the smaller old movie houses and can be found at this link ( below )

and some of the newer ( after 1950 ) theatres can be found at this link...
