Back in March we wrote about some of the amenities coming along with the massive 13-acre new development in nearby Edgewood including a gym, supermarket and movie theater.  We recently  learned from this story in DCist  that the theater will be a location of popular movie theater chain Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. From the article:

The 44,000 square-foot theater will feature luxury recliner seats, Sony 4K Digital Cinema projection, and “top-of-the-line” sound. Moviegoers will also be able to order in-house prepared food and craft beer from inside each theater or at the venue’s bar.

The development will span a 6 block area currently occupied by the Rhode Island Center (the shopping center with Big Lots and Forman Mills). The theater is planned to open in 2019. We will let you know when we hear anything new.

  1. I have always been curious how this is going to work. Are there even 6 blocks available for development there?? This shopping center is surrounded by houses?

    1. The image in this post shows where the buildings will go. All on land currently occupied by the giant surface parking lot. Not sure how anyone would have trouble imagining six blocks on a parking lot that expansive (and almost always empty).
