The Senator turns 75

The crown jewel of Baltimore's cinematic landscape, the beloved (and, since its 2013 restoration, never-looked-better) Senator Theatre celebrates its 75th birthday this year. The math-savvy and movie-conscious among you may already have realized one thing: The Senator was born in 1939, the year many regard as the greatest in Hollywood history, at least as far as the quality of films is concerned. This happy example of cinematic symmetry will be celebrated this fall with three screenings at the Senator, all done in conjunction with Nicholas Miller's film classes at Loyola University Maryland. On Oct. 2, it's 1952's "Singin' in the Rain," (7:30 p.m., $9-$11.50), with the Cold Spring Jazz Quartet playing beforehand (and yes, we know "Singin' in the Rain" isn't from 1939, but you're going to complain about seeing this masterpiece on the Senator's big screen?). The birthday love continues on Oct. 26 with 1939's "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" (11:30 a.m., $7), and on Nov. 16 with 1939's most enduring legacy, "The Wizard of Oz" (11:30 a.m., $7). Don't miss this chance to see classic Hollywood the way it was meant to be seen. The Senator Theatre is at 5904 York Road. For more information, call 410-323-4424 or go to -- Chris Kaltenbach
