News About This Theater
- Sep 24, 2007 — Dupont Circle 5 to close in Jan '08
Opening December 25, 1987, this five-screen arthouse replaced the original 360 seat single screen that was on the other side of the building facing Connecticut Avenue and which opened in 1948. Opening films included “Dirty Dancing”, “Matewan” and “Maurice”. The auditoriums were small, with the smallest auditorium having 59 seats. Three of the other auditoriums had 120, 130 and at 139 seats, the biggest in the complex.
The Dupont Circle 5 closed January 2008, essentially replaced by Landmark’s E. Street, which opened downtown in 2004, as an eight-screen arthouse. The Dupont Circle 5 was the last movie theatre open at Dupont Circle.
