Pikes Theatre Brings Movies Back to Pikesville
Towson, Maryland (October 31, 2013) – After a 30 year absence, the Pikes Theatre is bringing movies back to Pikesville. Two 75-seat stadium-style theatres with large "silver screens" for showing 3D movies join the Pikes Cinema Bar and Grille in a classic art deco building on Reisterstown Road at Sherwood Avenue.
'Dinner and a Movie' – 21st Century Style
The Pikes Theatre re-opens November 1 and will show a mix of first run films, art films and independent films.
"The opening of the new Pikes Theatre renews a long tradition of 'dinner and a movie' in Pikesville – with a 21st century twist," said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. "The Pikes Theatre and Pikes Cinema Bar and Grille bring a full entertainment experience to Pikesville in one classic building. It's easy to park once, then choose from five restaurants in one block for dining before or after the movies."
Free parking is available at the Pikes building or across the street at the Pikes Theatre lot at Reisterstown Road and Sherwood Avenue.
Pikes Theatre Project
Baltimore County has supported the Pikes Theatre project with a $50,000 Building Improvement Loan through the Department of Planning.
The original single screen Pikes theatre opened in 1937 and closed in 1983.
