The Uptown Theater

The return of one of DC's most iconic movie theaters is right around the corner. 

Landmark Theatres is in the final stages of negotiations that would have it operating the now-shuttered Uptown Theater in Cleveland Park, sources tell UrbanTurf. Last month, Michael Fant, vice president of real estate and development at Landmark, told UrbanTurf that Landmark was in talks to reopen the theater. 

Yesterday, the Cleveland Park Twitter account highlighted that the theater had applied to sell alcoholic beverages. 

Built in 1936, the 800-seat Uptown Theater closed in March 2020 as operator AMC's lease came to an end. It is one of the only single screen movie theaters remaining in the city and has been host to movie premieres like Jurassic Park and 2001: A Space Odyssey over the years. 

Blake-Dickson Real Estate Services is representing Landmark Theatres in the transaction.
