Styles: Colonial Revival
The Village Theatre opened in the Brentwood Shopping Center in October 17, 1940, with the first movie to be played “Hired Wife” starring Rosalind Russell. All seating was on a single level. A feature of the decoration was a series of photo murals located along the side-walls just below ceiling level, which depicted local scenes.
It was designed in a Colonial style by Baltimore architects John J. Zink and Raymond C. Snow. By 1967 it was screening X-rated movies and was closed down by 1969. It currently serves as a dollar store.
