Aberdeen, MD: Horizon Cinemas - Aberdeen Expected to Open in January 2020

Posted on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019 11:43 AM

An eight-screen movie theater is coming to the Aberdeen Marketplace at Route 22 and Beards Hill Road in Aberdeen, Maryland. The Baltimore Sun published an article recently that broke the news to moviegoers in the area:

A local movie theater owner is planning to bring a cinema back to Aberdeen after a 22-year absence.

Robert Weinholt Sr. and his sons signed a lease two weeks ago to open an eight-screen theater, with recliners, a bar and food choices in the vacant space that was Mars grocery store in the Aberdeen Marketplace shopping center, he told members of the Aberdeen City Council at their meeting May 6.

Planet Fitness occupies part of the former grocery store.

In 1986, Weinholt built and opened Beards Hill Theater in the shopping center on the north side of Route 22, he said. The theater closed in 1997 because of competition from the new Regal Cinemas in Constant Friendship.

“For 22 years, I’ve been trying to get back into Aberdeen,” Weinholt said. “We have the opportunity now.”

The article goes on to say that the Horizon Cinemas - Aberdeen will begin construction in July and open by January 2020. The "Beards Hill Theater" that is being referred to is the Beards Hill Movies 7, which did close in 1997.

Aberdeen Mayor Patrick McGrady said the following on his Facebook page:

Lights, Camera, Aberdeen!

Have you ever been to a Horizon Cinema, feet propped up in a luxurious leather recliner, and wondered when you could enjoy a quality evening at the movies without driving miles out of town? That day may be sooner than you think! Horizon Cinemas is coming to Aberdeen this winter with construction scheduled to start soon. The theater will be centrally located in the Aberdeen Marketplace, adjacent to the Planet Fitness. Featuring eight theater screens, reclining seating, a full-service bar, and an assortment of food on the menu, Horizon Cinemas will be the perfect family activity without leaving the comfort of the city! So... who wants to go to the movies?

Until it opens, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the AMC Classic Churchville 7 and the Regal Bel Air Cinema Stadium 14.

Horizon Cinemas operates four other locations in Maryland, including the Horizon Cinemas - Fallston, which is about eleven miles away from the Aberdeen location.
