PIKESVILLE, Md. - For the first time in 30 years, there will be movies showing once again at Pikes Theatre.
Two 75-seat stadium-style theaters with large "silver screens" for showing 3D movies join the Pikes Cinema Bar and Grille in a classic art deco building on Reisterstown Road in Pikesville
Owners of the theater plan on showing a mix of first-run movies, along with art 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 in a statement. "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."
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.
