Catching the latest movies at a state-of-the-art movie theater is a great way to spend your day. But, what makes the experience even better is watching it at a theater that is also Black-owned.

NextAct Cinema was opened in March of this year and it is said to be Maryland’s first and only Black-family owned theater. Brothers Anthony Fykes and Robert Wright are the founders of the theater and movie watching has always been a favorite pastime in their family.

The theater features plush leather chairs and an amazing sound system that gives moviegoers a one-of-a-kind experience. In addition to being able to watch the latest flicks, you can also order drinks from the full bar as well as enjoy a meal.

Menu items include quesadillas, crab cakes, pizza, salmon, and salads NextAct is also famous for its exclusive beer cheddar seasoned popcorn. Food and drinks can be ordered from your movie seat starting at 12 noon each day.

To learn more about the theater or to find out the address and showtimes, you can check the website: nextactcinema.com.
