There is a brand-new Black-owned movie theater in Pikesville, Maryland. NextAct Cinema opened their doors on March 7th of this year. Their website reads, "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 ordered throughout the movie from your seats.”
NextAct is the only Black-owned movie theater in the area. The family believes, "Representation Matters". They want their customers to be able to experience films in a diverse way, making their viewing experience one they are comfortable with.
The Wright family always had the dream of opening their own cinema. They always had a theatre room in their home, but wanted to expand their family experience to something the general public could also enjoy the way they did in the comfort of their own home.
NextAct Cinema's address is 921 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville, MD. For more information or to reserve your seat for ‘Avengers: End Game’, visit nextactcinema.com.
