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.
