Opened in 1909 as the Hippodrome Theatre, this theatre was located on K Street NW near New York Avenue off Mount Vernon Square. It was designed by Julius Wenig. From 1929 until the late-1940’s it was operated by the Sidney Lust Theaters chain.
In 1945 the Hippodrome Theatre began showing art and foreign films, and was renamed the Art Theatre in 1954. When art movies gave way to gay pornographic films in June 1970, it was again renamed, as the Mark II Theatre screening “Song of the Loon”. By December 1970 it had switched to showing ‘straight’ adult movies. It was demolished in to 1970’s.
