The Irvington was my neighborhood theater between 1942 and 1945. I well remember sittin my father’s lap and watching a move called “Miracle of O'Morgan’s Gap” don’t remember the movie but the previews of “The Uninvited” with Ray Milland scared the pants of me,

Since our photo is upside down, here is a whole page of photos of the Irvington Theatre, from the excellent Maryland movie theater web site, Kilduff’s. Unfortunately, all are from the time after the house was converted into a church. I’ve been unable to find any photos from the period when it was still a theater.

Proud to be the first person to remember this theatre fondly; it was the very first theatre I was allowed to visit by myself, an important milestone for a kid. Nor should people scoff at its size; the downtown Baltimore Little Theater was half the size of the Irvington, seat-wise. I remember any number of movies I saw here, as well as the vending machine at the back that always seemed to have Goldberg Peanut Chews, a treat I still enjoy. It was also quieter than the Edmonson Village theatre two miles away, as that was next to a bowling alley.

The contract for the foundations of this theater had been let, but the architects were taking revised bids on the general contract, according to an item in the September 9, 1922, issue of The American Contractor.

Just wondering if anyone remembers a train garden in the basement of the Irvington Theater in Baltimore in the early 60’s ? if so some info on it please.
