Are you referring to the Queens Chapel Drive-In in Hyattsville? This venue was demolished in the late 1980s and is now part of the Hyattsville Metro Station.
The Westhampton is definitely among an elite group of cinemas which merit making a two hour drive to see a film there. Exterior shots from 2010: 1, 2, 3
Check the Crown Aspen Hill Theatres. This twin turned quad is now a drug store.
This cinema is up and running again as the Montgomery Royal Theatre (MRT). The short lived cinema and drafthouse concept has been abandoned and conventional theatre seating has been restored to each of the six auditoria (no word as to what the other four auditoria will be used for. The MRT is an independent operation showing first run films a few bucks less than the major chains.

The theatre exterior is vintage 1970s architecture and quite impressive. Although I didnâ€™t have a chance to get any interior shots, I did manage to get a couple of the exterior: 1, 2

OMG when I recently pulled up the satellite map for the address of the Cobb it appears that this architectural gem has been demolished! If anyone knows the status of this shrine of cinematography please update! Would love to see the interior of the Cobb if anyone has any photos they would be willing to share.

An interesting design and the last of its kind in the metropolitan DC area. Some parting shots from 2008: 1, 2
How was the auditorium configured on this theatre; was it parallel with the lobby (similar to the Lefont Screening Room) or conventional (e.g. Cobb Cinema)? The site of cinema wasnâ€™t much larger than the dining area of a Waffle House.
A real shame! Although the interior had been gutted, there were still in place some very distinctive vestiges of its previous incarnation as a cinema showplace. Had this been a viable community, it might have been a great spot for Landmark to construct a multiplex art house in its shell. Although the property looked tired and haggard last time I saw it, it still had that rare architectural distinction one so rarely encounters.
A delightful boutique cinema! The venue staff is very affable, professional and diligent in keeping the place immaculate, inviting and comfortable. The original four auditoria are period pieces from the 1970s featuring large, wide screens. All of the auditoria feature excellent audio and video capabilities. Here andhere are 2009 photos of the Downtown West.

Here is a 2009 photo of the cinema.
So this is the former RebYank! Was the original auditorium split into four sections or were the other auditoriums added on? 2009 photos of the Manassas Cinema: 1, 2
Unfortunately the balance of the photos I made of the interior didnâ€™t turn out as well due very little lighting in the sanctuary/auditorium. The rear of the sanctuary continues with the theatre motif (note the projection booth in the top balcony and theatre seating rather than pews) whereas the pulpit is about the only area distinctively,â€¦..churchy.
What is the verdict on this building; was it ever a theatre or has it always been a church? Both the exterior and interior strongly suggest that it was initially intended to be a theatre. Here are a few shots from 2009: 1, 2
