Senator Theatre 5904 York Road, Baltimore, MD

The Senator Theatre opened October 5, 1939, with 1,024 seats all on a single level.

The opening attraction was “Stanley and Livingstone” starring Spencer Tracy. It was designed in the Art Deco style by theatre architect John J. Zink, whose other theatre designs include the Uptown Theatre in Washington DC. Interior decorations were carried out by the Paramount Decorating Co. On one side of the projection booth was a sound-proof party room and on the other side there was a sound-proof nursery.

During its operation, the theatre has been used to raise millions of dollars for local and national charitable organizations. It has also hosted world premieres and has been featured in numerous films and commercials, including “Avalon”, “12 Monkeys”, “Cecil B. Demented”, and others.

The theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Notes by David Frier, Colin P. Varga, Gayle Grove
