The Forest Theatre was located on Garrison Boulevard near the corner of Liberty Heights Avenue, this was probably Barry Levinson’s neighborhood theatre. The Forest Park Theatre opened on December 22, 1919 and closed on May 13, 1961. It has beautiful brick work adorning the front facade of the theatre.
The Forest Theatre takes up almost the entire block in a neighborhood that is known to many as the “Diner Crew” area. The old theatre, like many other old Baltimore theatres, has since been used since as a church and is now a mosque. There was even a mini marquee at the rear of the theatre.
