A Baltimore Date...Movie at the Charles and a Crepe

How about a movie at the Charles and afterwards a  Crepe treat right next door?

The Charles is located at 1711 N.Charles St. just two blocks north of Penn Station of Baltimore's Penn Station 

The structure that holds the Charles Theater was  designed in 1892 (119 years ago) by architect Jackson C. Gott. "The Beaux-Arts buildings were originally designed to be a cable car barn (north side) and a powerhouse (south side). The buildings served as cable car facilities for four years after which they became a streetcar barn, a bus barn, a library for the blind, and the Famous Ballroom. In 1939, the Times Theatre opened on the site as Baltimore's first all-newsreel movie house. The theater was re-named the Charles circa 1959 and became a calendar revival house in 1979. The Charles remained a single-screen theater until 1999, when a dramatic expansion was completed to accommodate four additional screening rooms. The new five-screen Charles has a spacious, comfortable lobby and the four new screening rooms have stadium seating. The original auditorium still has 485 seats and has been altered only slightly."
