Memory of theaters of yesterday
Oct 11, 2013 by: Smedley L from Hagerstown, Maryland
Designed by Thomas Lamb, the theater opened in 1915. There were 3 theaters almost within arms length so as theater and movie technology advanced The Maryland Theater was left behind. Closing in the late 1940's it remained dormant until a fire in 1974 damaged the front part. Private money completely returned the glorious theater and today it is a wonderful example of theater opulence of yesterday. Seating 1300 patrons, with a restored Wurlitzer organ, it is the current home of The Maryland Symphony. Bob Hope performed at the theater in 1982. The theater was featured in the movie "Guarding Tess" and remains today a wonderful destination for local and nationally know performers.
Wind Down Fridays
Aug 02, 2013 by: overk1200 from Hagerstown, Maryland
The Maryland Theater hosts wind down Fridays with live music in the courtyard, weather permitting. If it rains, it is moved inside. The bar is open and usually light food is available. The music is usually provided by local bands and through the season different styles of music are performed.
A True Local Treasure!

This theater has been lovingly restored to its original majesty. Built in the 1920's it is a true treasure and is used for plays, concerts and a variety of events including the Miss Maryland Beauty Pageant each year. It is the pride of Hagerstown.
Historic restored theater.

Well maintained historic theater with comfortable seating. Philharmonic shows, especially the holiday show are good. Regular musical acts are less inspiring Gaelic Storm used to play but that stopped a couple of years back.
Historic and Beautiful

I've been to many events at this facility and I've never been disappointed. I love the historical throw backs that this theater offers. The only suggestion I would have would be to improve the selection of the concession stand but that's a minor thing. I love this beautiful theatre.
