Discerning D.C. movie patrons are fortunate because there’s no shortage of comfortable, state-of-the-art venues to choose from and almost all of them offer amenities equal to or better than the stuff at the brash, crowded multiplex chain theaters. If the big budget blockbuster scene isn’t for you, the District has a primo art house that’s sure to fit your style.
Landmark Theatres are in a class all their own and offer an alternative to the big movie house chains. Landmark Theatres is the nation’s largest group of playhouses dedicated to showing documentaries, 3-D, independent, foreign, and restored classic films. No matter what city you’re in, you can count on their 57 theaters and 275 screens in 28 markets to deliver and that includes the four theaters located in the DMV. Landmark is serious about the customer experience and offers online ticket sales, Dolby sound, high-tech projection, closed captioning and hard-of-hearing assistance, handicapped accessible venues, large comfy seats, and premium concessions. The newer theaters include high-end bars with full drink menus and upscale food selections.
