Landmark Theater West End…has disappeared entirely from the Landmark Theaters website. It was still listed as “Temporarily Closed” not very long ago.”
Ed. Note: Still waiting to hear about E Street and Atlantic plumbing opening dates.
From Union Market:
“Let’s roll down the windows, feel that summer breeze and turn up the radio because the 9th Annual Drive-In at Union Market is back. A DC “must-do,” the series of six movies will launch the first Friday of every month beginning May 7 through October 1. We are skipping the dramas this year in favor of action, comedy and cult classics. Read More
“Beginning May 1st, the indoor capacity limit for non-essential retail businesses is raised from 25% to 50% or 250 people, whichever is lower.”

I was wondering if anyone knows about open movie theaters in the DC area?
I saw the post a few weeks ago about the boards coming down outside of Atlantic Plumbing (yay!) but they seem to still be closed. I’m recently vaccinated and hoping to be able to return to a theater soon so any info you or others may know would be greatly appreciated!”
