Landmark Theatres has moved one step closer to opening its anticipated new Atlantic Plumbing Cinema near the 9:30 Club and U Street corridor.
ABRA today posted the theater chain’s public hearing notice for a Class CX liquor license application.
According to the application, the cinema aims to operate as a “high-end theatre with a cafe, serving patrons a variety of food offerings, including local specialties and spirits,” with indoor seating for 369 patrons. The cinema also aims to have a summer garden with seating for 14.
Though no opening date has been set, a Washington Business Journal article reports the theater will open its doors in October.
There have been trucks and cranes and “No Parking” signs all over this part of the city today. Yesterday the signs appeared in Borderstan and today there were orange cones on 15th Street between R and Corcoran Streets NW.
Tonight we finally know why: a movie production company is filming in Borderstan. Trucks and crews are all around… setting up lighting or just putting down equipment. We don’t really know much about the movie yet, but a good guess is that it’s the Reese Witherspoon-Paul Rudd-Owen Wilson movie that was doing production in Adams Morgan today.
