We attended a movie here that one of our friends had a personal connection to the story. We had dinner at the crepe place across the street and saw the show. The theater is big, the seating generous. It's kind if half renovated, no stadium seating, minuscule concessions -which isn't a ding as far as I'm concerned. We parked nearby.... More

The Senator has been a Baltimore icon, but frankly the architecture is undistinguished and the theater cannot compare to some of the grand theaters from the 1930s and 40s that have sadly been demolished. The only saving grace of this place is its age, but it was never a beauty.

I can remember great films I saw here, Star Wars, The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, Top Gun, a few Gene Wilder films and, of course, Barry Levinson's. My memory escapes me, however, always chose this spot if it was a special movie. Not sure of what they show now.

I have a thing for old theaters and find it sad that they aren't as revered as the new ones. This one almost was closed a few years ago and I'm glad that it didn't. We enjoy movies here and will always choose here over the new places.

Beautiful old fashioned movie theater (the mens lounge is way groovy) with nice BIG screen. The main downside is that seats are pretty historic as well-anything over 2 hours and my back is not happy.

This place was interesting because it had an interior that some of us remember from our youth (one big screen in a sizable room, with some ornate and warm decor features). It was also was imbedded in a neighborhood, rather than part of a distinct shopping/entertainment complex. Otherwise, it was never a big draw for me as a regular destination,... More

Wonderful old building, great movie house, wish they could move it to Bel Air so more people would go, not a great location to drive to but worth it when you get there, too far for us

The Senator has seen better days and is desperate need of some much needed repairs. The paint is peeling in spots, the wood accents on the wall looked water damaged and overall has a dingy feel. That said, we went and saw "Incredibly Close and Extremely Loud," last night had a great theatre experience. The screen is HUGE and the... More
