The Maryland Theatre opened in 1928 on the site of the Woodlawn Theatre in the heart of the Woodlawn neighborhood’s E. 63rd Street business and entertainment corridor, standing between S. Drexel Avenue and S. Maryland Avenue. The Maryland Theatre was within blocks of both the palatial Tivoli Theatre and the Trianon Ballroom (sister to the Aragon Ballroom in Uptown), as well as a handful of smaller theatres.
The Maryland Theatre, which originally seated 1,800, was operated by Balaban & Katz from its opening until the 1960’s, when it became part of the ABC Theatres chain. In the 1970’s it hosted African-American performing artists.
The theatre was closed in 1977, and was virtually destroyed by vandals in the 1980’s which led to its demolition in the 1990’s. The site is now a parking lot.
