NOTE: This baseball stadium was the home of the Baltimore Oriloes from 1916 through 1944, when the wooden structure was destroyed in a fire. This team was in the minor-league International League, and relocated to Richmond, Virginia when the St. Louis Browns moved to Baltimore in 1954 to become the Baltimore Orioles.
were no night games, so the stadium could easily screen films in the
evenings. It was likely only used for films during the summer months,
as Baltimore gets quite cold in the winter. There were no air-conditioned
theaters in 1916-1917, so an open-air theater was probably quite
comfortable in the summer. -- Bruce Calvert
