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.

Seeing a movie on the big screen in the main theater should not be missed. The preserved historic charm of the theater is complimented with an amazing sound system and cushy new seats. Check the schedule for retro movie screenings.
