Barring any last minute saviour, the last historic single-screen movie house in Baltimore City will be auctioned off next Wednesday (July 22) at 11:00 AM.
While dismissing the viability of transitioning the theatre to non-profit ownership, city official have tried to reassure the community that things will turn out fine – We all desperately hope that means better faring than the historic Mayfair Theatre (whose roof collapsed under the city’s ownership).
So, make plans now to visit The Senator Theatre for a real big screen treat:

“Brimming with action while incisively examining the nature of truth, Rashomon is perhaps the finest film ever to investigate the philosophy of justice. Through an ingenious use of camera and flashbacks, Kurosawa reveals the complexities of human nature…” Toshiro Mifune gives another commanding performance in the eloquent masterwork that revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema to the world.” – Criterion
“Rashomon (1950) struck theworld of film like a thunderbolt.”
