The AMC Loews Georgetown 14 is located on K. Street between Wisconsin Avenue and 31st Street as part of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, residences and commercial complex. Metro operates busses from Foggy Bottom and Roslyn Metro stops.

Rising from the theatre’s industrial-styled lobby is the restored 175 feet tall red brick smokestack from the historic Georgetown incinerator. The incinerator was built in 1932 and closed in 1971. It was designed by David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group. There is a view to the Potamic River from inside the theatre.

All auditoriums have stadium seating, luxury seats and digital surround sound. The largest four auditoriums seat 300 and the smallest auditoriums seat 100.

The 67,000 square feet theatre was under construction for two years before opening on November 29, 2002. It became part of AMC in January 2006 with the merger with Loews.

I too have noticed a lack of masking for the some of the movies I’ve seen recently at AMC and Regal cinemas. I have to agree it is lazy and kind of annoying. I can tolerate it to a certain extent but what puzzles me is these same theaters used to adjust the screen prior to the show starting so it would be masked properly. It doesn’t look that difficult but I could be wrong.

Newer theaters & remodels by Regal (such as the Majestic Silver Spring) lack masking for all screens, a deliberate, stupid policy that ruins the moviegoing experience! Cinemark is also doing so at some or all of their theaters nationwide. No curtains, bad. Digital projection, not as beautiful as 35 or 70mm. Lack of masking, though- unacceptable. I am patronizing movie theaters that use masking, for now.

Amen to that Howard. I don’t mind digital projection. I won’t say it’s better than 35 or 70MM but think it looks significantly better in 2D than 3D. But I don’t think proper masking is asking for much, especially what we’re paying for ticket prices today.

I noticed this while down at Charlottesville, at the Regal Stonefield Stadium 14, that the new screens are what the industry refers to as ‘floating screens’ and sadly are fixed at 1.85, thus any scope movie is nestled in the middle of the screen and essentially letterboxed – one word: yuck!

Giles,

I know you mentioned that the Dolby Cinema auditorium is medium sized, but I’m wondering: is the screen size bigger/smaller/about the same than the Tyson’s Dolby Cinema?

the Tyson’s screen is significantly taller and wider, so yes, the DC screen here is smaller; on the plus side the audio is much better calibrated and not as inconsistent as it is at Tysons.

awesome, thanks for the info! Shame that the Tysons one ended up being a flat 1.85 screen even though it was bigger, would’ve been cool if it was a scope screen

the Tyson’s screen was flat even in it’s prior ETX form – however when Dolby added more lighting, that’s when the problem with the light bouncing back onto the screen occurred.

gotcha, that makes sense. I did notice the exit lights reflecting back onto the screen a bit when I saw “X-Men: Apocalypse” there last year, was annoying at first but eventually I got so sucked into the movie I forgot. I think I’ll probably go see “Wonder Woman” at this Georgetown Dolby screen when it opens in June
