I saw the Beatles movie “Help!” repeatedly there, just continuing to sit through all of the showings. Loved it! I think I saw “A Hard Day’s Night” there also. But I was only 10 years old, so my memory is is not great, at this point. I lived in Garrett Park Estates from Kindergarten through 6th grade, so I LIVED at that theater, going with my 2 brothers & my friends. Loved it, such happy memories ❤ Any

Hi rivest266, I looked for the photos you mentioned, and found nothing. How would I search for it? I first searched for Pike Theater photos, zero results (after skimming through the Photos page.) Then I searched in the Seach Photos bar for Pike Theater Rockville Maryland, zilch, & lastly,searched for May 26 1964, again, nada. Thanks so much!

This was pretty much the only big single-screen for miles in the 70’s. Got a lot of good mileage out of the Pike; endlessly stood in line in freezing weather there to see “Superman” in 1978; saw many other titles there as well — “Logan’s Run,” “Capricorn One,” “Star Wars” and finally “All of Me” in 1984. Had no idea “Car Wash” premiered there; that’s cool. (And thanks for the info, sconnell1.)

The Pike theater opened on Wednesday, May 27, 1964 with “The Pink Panther” which opened in its local run with many other theaters after playing 9 weeks at RKO Keith’s in downtown D.C.

there was a movie theater here? I honestly don’t remember seeing anything here, but did see movies now and then up the Pike at the Congressional 5.
