Following is the full press release:

“Landmark Theatres will open a six-screen cinema at Atlantic Plumbing, a new mixed-use community at 8th and V Streets NW being developed by The JBG Companies and Walton Street Capital. This is the second new theatre Landmark is building in the Washington Metropolitan area. In November it was announced they were also opening at Capitol Point on New York Avenue, another JBG development.

“We are eager to be a part of the Atlantic Plumbing development in the U Street corridor near D.C.’s popular 9:30 Club” said Landmark Theatres’ CEO and President Ted Mundorff. “Our customers are going to love what we are planning. From the indoor-outdoor café to our very high end seating, this is the perfect location for our new theatre.”

Atlantic Plumbing, expected to open late 2015, will be Landmark Theatres’ fourth location in the Washington market. The E Street Cinema in Penn Quarter will celebrate its 10th Anniversary this month and the popular Bethesda Row Cinema in Maryland underwent a complete renovation last spring. The Capitol Point location is expected to open Fall 2016.

“We broke ground on Atlantic Plumbing this fall, and we’re very pleased to have Landmark Theatres join us,” said Robin Mosle, a JBG executive vice president. “With Atlantic Plumbing’s grit-meets-glam vibe and focus on independent artists, it really is a natural fit and a terrific addition to the area. Landmark’s audience will appreciate the atmosphere at Atlantic Plumbing with its unique design and authentic feel, as much as they will its eclectic neighborhood.”

The mixed-use development designed by New York architect Morris Adjmi and Washington, DC-based Eric Colbert & Associates and featuring a steel exo-skeleton, encompasses two buildings and more than 350,000 square feet. The 10-story main building, with 310 residential units, is currently under construction. It will feature the Landmark Theatres and an additional 11,500 square feet for restaurants, retail and artist studios.”
