The National Jewel Center is located at 1351 Wisconsin Avenue NW. You can’t miss it because it has the old (neon?) Georgetown sign out front. I went in to speak with the owners after seeing the for sale sign in their window. They said the last day is Aug. 31st though most of the store has already been cleared out. They said they’ve been open for over 20 years and back in the day the space used to be a theater. Cinematour says:
“Opened as the Dumbarton in 1913, a playhouse, this theater started showing movies sometime later. It was designed by architect William Nichols.
Located on Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown, the movie house was renamed the Georgetown in 1947. It was also remodeled around this time in Streamline Moderne style. The Georgetown was closed in 1986 and is today used for retail.”
According to the for sale info the space is 6,086 sq ft (though no price is listed.)
While the space needs tons of work the potential is amazing. I know it’s a long shot but I’m gonna hope for a cinema pub/drafthouse.
