10-Screen Movie Theater Coming to NoMa in 2016
Highbrow films are coming to the fast-growing neighborhood. By Benjamin Freed

Landmark Theatres plans to open a ten-screen multiplex in Northeast DC’s continuously under construction NoMa neighborhood. The theater, which Landmark aims to open by late 2016 (just in time for awards season), will be a retail anchor at Capitol Point, a mixed-use development being built along New York Avenue by the development firm JBG.

The theater will be Landmark’s third in Washington, after its eight-screen venues on E Street, Northwest, in downtown DC, and in Bethesda. In addition to Landmark’s usual slate of independent flicks, foreign features, and highbrow mainstream release, the NoMa multiplex will feature a full-service bar and 3D projection.

Besides the 31,000-square-foot movie theater, JBG’s Capitol Point development will include another 44,000 square feet of retail, 600 residential units, a 200-foot Hyatt hotel, and 1 million square feet of office space. Securing Landmark to anchor the project also gives DC something of a movie theater boom. A mixed-use development at Navy Yard being built by Forest City will include a 16-screen theater when it opens, possibly also in 2016.
