After an almost-17-year-run, the Recher Theatre will be closing its doors soon, according to Towson Patch.
The Recher family, which owns the popular hot spot and the attached Rec Room, plans to convert the venue into a nightclub called Torrent Lounge.
“The [nightclub] scene is doing much better,” said Brian Recher, who co-owns the Recher Theatre with brothers Steve Recher and Scott Recher. “The younger kids are going toward the DJ scene more.”
The family has already begun the initial phase of the changeover by revamping the venue’s patio space.
Brian Recher added that more renovations for Torrent Lounge will begin in March, and band performances will continue on until then.
A grand opening date for the new lounge has not yet been made public.
The family opened the Recher Theatre in 1996. The building was previously the Towson Theatre.
