Landmark Theaters has officially announced that it will open a six-screen independent movie theater at JBG’s 375-unit Atlantic Plumbing project. The theater is scheduled to open next year.

UrbanTurf first reported the likelihood of this news last June when it heard that JBG was in talks with a independent movie theater for one of its new U Street projects.

Following that rumor, news about DC movie theater openings came fast and furious.

Last summer, ANC 6D voted unanimously to support the newest plan for the Navy Yard, which included a 600-unit mixed-use development and a 16-screen Showplace movie theater.

Then, in rapid succession, two more theaters were announced in relatively close proximity to one another. On November 7th, we reported that a 10-screen Landmark Theater would open in NoMa with a full-­‐service bar, luxury seats, reserved seat selection, and 3-D projection. Not more than a week later, The Washington Post reported that an eight-screen Angelika movie theater would open at Union Market in 2015. The Angelika Film Center is known for showing independent movies and offering movie-watching cuisine that goes beyond popcorn and soda.
