We come here often to see movies. The employees are friendly and the theater is wonderful! The movie/snack prices are great-not too high. Love that you can eat delicious Clark burgers and drink local beer while enjoying a movie. Support the Senator!!

There may well be no better place to see a film in Baltimore. A classic movie house, with its original decor, and patrons who respect the art of film making. The Senator has panache, élan, understated elegance, and is, quite simply, a true pleasure to...More

If you like movies and appreciate a true movie theatre, do yourself a favor and go to The Senator. Baltimore’s favorite cinema shows regular blockbuster feature films as well as a tantalizing array of oldies but goodies. I grew up going to The Senator and...More

Enjoy yourself in a 900 seat auditorium, with wall deco decorations from the opening day, 1939. With a 40 foot screen and a state of the art sound and projection systems, you will have a wonderful experience. I have been going there for the last...More

I love The Senator! We try to always go here rather than a chain theater. The ambiance and decor simply cannot be beat. When Star Wars Episode VII came out, we saw that opening night, and they had musicians on stage playing the soundtrack before...More

Some movies were made to be seen on a huge screen with great sound and shared with a live audience. This is not your average Netflix movie experience. History, art deco, a restored movie palace. Your kids have never seen anything like this. And they...More

Same as subject. Best of the best in old time renovated theatres. Always a joy to support a real movie theatre.

The Senator I have visited throughout the many years of living in the Baltimore area. Full of nostalgia, beautiful art deco, still only 1 huge screen, unlike all of the multiplex theater out there now. Directly off York Road near Towson, Maryland.
