Towson, MD: Cinemark Towson and XD Opens Today

Theater PhotoThe Cinemark Towson and XD in Towson, Maryland opens to the public today, July 10, 2014.

The 15-screen movie theater is the anchor for the Towson Town Center, a shopping, dining, and entertainment destination in the northern part of Baltimore near I-695 (the Baltimore Beltway) and Dulaney Valley Road.

A press release issued by Cinemark states that all auditoriums have "wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor" screens, lit by 4K Digital Cinema Projection systems. Seven auditoriums have 3D capability.

It features one of Cinemark's big-screen concept XD auditoriums, which offers an upgraded experience in exchange for an upcharge. The Baltimore Magazine article below says that the screen measures 70 feet wide, and the press release states that there are more than 60 speakers in the sound system. While this would imply that they are capable of the advanced sound formats, such as Dolby Atmos or Barco's Auro 11.1, they make no mention of either in the press release or in their showtimes.

There is also a "Reserve Level" in five auditoriums, which Cinemark's web site identifies as having the following amenities:

  • Luxury "rocker-style" Seating with Tables
  • Private Balcony Access to Auditoriums
  • Full Bar and Lounge
  • Expanded Dining Menu (Chicken Tinga Nachos, Baja Style Fish Tacos, Crab Cake Sliders and Bacon-Basil Pesto Chicken Flatbread Pizza, and more)

This is the first Cinemark location to have the "Reserve Level" options available to customers.

The area hasn't had a theater since the AMC Towson Commons 8 closed in 2011. The closest movie theaters are the historic Senator Theatre, the Rotunda Cinemas, and the Beltway Movies 6, all within about five miles.
