The historic Senator Theatre closed Thursday to begin renovations, said an operator of the movie house, which opened on York Road in 1939.

The theater will be closed for six-to-nine months, said James "Buzz" Cusack, who runs the North Baltimore landmark with his daughter, Kathleen Lyon.

When it reopens, the building will house a restaurant and three new theaters as well as the original auditorium, he said.

The renovations will cost more than $3 million, Cusack said.
