  • Senator Theatre - Baltimore, MD -  McCanless

    Reviews: 77

    Okay

    A previous review dubbed this cool old movie house "World Class". While it surely isn't that, it is a quality place to take in a movie, and absolutely beats the local mega-plex. Chairs are still poor (they're not "stadium" per the previous review, they're uncomfortable old ones with poor back support), though, the sound system lacks, and the neighborhood doesn't give one many reasons to come early or stay late. The Thai restaurant across the street is OK, though. For something more approximating "World Class" in a retro theater, try the outstanding Uptown Theater, Washington, D.C., which is far superior in most every respect to the Senator, and has varied and quality pre/post movie options in fun Cleveland/Woodley Park. It is right on Metro's red line.

    If you've never been to the Senator, go. There's really not much more to say, because it'll all become evident when you purchase your ticket and set food into the lobby. The theater is not only a step back into time, but it's a step into a first class, state of the art, first-run movie house. In an age when theaters of the Senator's age are being relegated to second run movies, multi-purpose venues, or -- worse yet -- being closed forever, the Senator plows forward as a premiere place to watch the movies. The screen is absolutely gargantuan, there's not a bad seat in the house, the sound is state of the art, and the theater staff are like a family. It's a must-visit venue for any movie fan.
