Deja Vu ! If you’ve seen one……

In the Book ” Exit”, by Dr. Robert Headley , he mentions the four Baltimore Area movie theatres that were built around the same time by the same builder. Paramount 2015I was passing by and updating the photo for the Paramount Theatre last week and wondered how the “sister” theatres of the group were doing. The Paramount just recently was converted into an adult daycare center. The building appears to b in great shape. Playhouse 2015

The next in the group is the Homewood / Playhouse Theatre on 25th Street. Currently known as the Autograph Playhouse, I’m not sure how much use the old theatre has been getting. Apex 2015We find the next of the group in Fell’s Point and what was Baltimore’s last active “X-Rated” theatre, the Apex. The marquee of the old theatre was taken down just last year, but overall the theatre, converted into a market, seems to be doing fine. Colgate 2015We travel down to Dundalk for the final of the four, and the Colgate. Recently used as a Bingo Hall and most recently a mattress store, the Colgate is currently vacant.
