  Reisterstown, in Northwest Baltimore County, has had several movie theatre names that I have located, but several seem to be names for the New Theatre, seen above. In 1931, the FDA listed a State Theatre for the town, but at this point, no other information has been found on the State. I am still looking into the 1920's history of the town, but in 1928, Reisterstown suffered a fire that destroyed much of the business district.

................................................................................................................................Reisterstown in the " early years ".
......By the late 1930's, references were found for both the Reisterstown Theatre and New Theatre, although from what I can find, the address of 49 Reisterstown Road was listed for both. However, the Reisterstown showed a seating of 300, while the New showed more than 500. Besides the confusion on these theatre names, the Montrose is also listed  in 1938, but I believe that was the nearby Montrose School. The New Theatre building still stands, used for years as a Sunny Surplus store and currently being used by a business.
