||902 South Linwood Avenue
Baltimore City, Maryland
( Southeast Baltimore )
Opened : 1910's
Closed by 1950's
Seated under 500
Seems to have been razed
Back in the 1980's, the area around the Linwood Theatre had yet to become
"part of Canton", and the Linwood Theatre looked bad. The theatre was quite
a sight back in the day and operated from the 1910's to the 1950's, with
the marquee and entranceway attached to the building just to the left in
the photo. The building appears to have been a warehouse for some time, and
seems to be a office now. The photo below shows that the building had been
doing very well, in an area that has sky rocketed in real estate values,
but a visit in 2011 found it appears a newer building is on the site, with
the Linwood having been razed.

Linwood Theatre as it appears today. In an area known as Canton, the neighborhood
has seen seen property values surge, and those buildings that were in poor
repair have been fixed up, which included the Linwood. The building still
has the three diamond windows in place, which helps set it off from those
other buildings in the block.
