Baltimore City Reduces Tax on Admissions to Single-Screen Movie Theaters
The Mayor and City Council of Baltimore City have enacted an ordinance reducing the admissions and amusement tax on admissions to any single-screen movie theater that rents or leases its motion picture film through commercial distribution from 10% to 5%, effective September 1, 1993.
The 5% rate also applies to admissions to any theater included on the National Register of Historic Places. The rate of 10% remains in effect for admissions to any other movie theater. The additional 5, 10 or 15-cent tax imposed on all free or reduced price admissions also remains in effect.
