The Pikes Theatre in Pikesville, Maryland has reopened as the Next Act Cinema at the Pikes.

Located about ten miles northwest of downtown Baltimore, the theater originally opened in 1934. It closed in 1986 and was turned into a diner called the Pikes Diner. Horizon Cinemas reopened it in 2013 as the Pikes Theatre, which closed in September 2016. According to a contact at the theater, it officially reopened March 7, 2019 with a showing of Captain Marvel.

The theater's web site describes itself as follows:

NextAct Cinemas, is an independent boutique theater that offers a unique, personalized movie going experience for our customers. You will have the option of eating and drinking while relaxing in a comfortable leather chair or come socialize and join us for beer and wine at the bar. Seating is reserved so get your tickets early and join us at least 30 minutes prior to your movie showing to enjoy a meal. Concession items can still be order throughout the movie from your seats.

In keeping with its previous life as a diner, the theater offers a selection of food and beverage items in addition to the traditional theater snacks and drinks. The menu on their Facebook page shows that soup, salad, sandwiches, wraps, and pizzas are available, and if you're thirsty for more than soft drinks, a selection of beer and wine is offered.

Admission prices start at $11 for a child/senior matinee ticket and go up to $16.50 for an adult evening show. Please see the Ticket Prices page for more details. The theater does have an admissions policy that welcomes moviegoers of all ages for shows before 7pm, but then restricts attendance to those 21 and older after 7pm.

Until now, moviegoers in the area had to go to the AMC Owings Mills 17 or the AMC Security Square 8 to see a movie, so this news will surely be welcome, especially for those that enjoyed movies at the Pikes Theatre in the past.
