News About This Theater
- May 21, 2010 — Happy 30th, "Empire"
- Apr 1, 2009 — KB Studio 1-2-3, and KB Cinema Movie Theatre alumni (Washington, DC)
The Cinema had one of the largest screens in the DC area and was second only to the Uptown Theatre in auditorium size.
Seating more than 800 patrons, the theater wasn’t as old as the Avalon Theatre, but its mid-20th century charm was evident both inside and out. The Cinema opened March 31, 1965.
Renovated in 1997, the Cinema was last operated by Loews Cineplex Entertainment, which closed it in January 2005. It became a furniture showroom, and has now been converted into a sporting club (gym).
