The Drafthouse is an institution with four locations in the city, many more in Texas and a franchise in Virginia. Inaugurated in 1997, the single screen operated for a decade before the two-screen location on 6th Street, became famous for hosting prestigious film festivals, besides serving local cuisine and beers. Texting while viewing, is not allowed and we appreciate this.

The Senator, Baltimore, MD

After 50 years of opening in 1939, the single screened theater is on the National Register of Historic Places, and has 900 seats. For those who don’t know, the Senator has been through litigation, auction and foreclosure. But strong popular support from a very passionate class of movie fans from Baltimore City and the entire community, maintained its rich legacy alive. The American movie palace boasts a lobby with the same iconic terrazzo floors, amazing murals, and each screening showcases their 40-foot long curved screen, hidden behind a considerable golden curtain. That’s sheer class for you!

Al. Ringling Theater, Wisconsin

A touch of 1915 French magnificence was beyond imagination for anyone. A massive overhaul from a well-known circus to a magnificent proscenium now stands testimony to this. French opera houses at this theatre, are now located in Baraboo. Renovations continued for many years, and that’s why the interiors look this beautiful now. Before watching the movie, we recommend taking some time to marvel at the magnificence of the place: box seats, chandeliers, grand columns, and movies. If fascinated by the arts program section, great classic movies are played regularly.
