AMC Georgetown 14

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 totalling 3,000 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.

The total seating capacity was reduced to 1,281 due to the installation of recliner seats.

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

Per the Large Format Examiner’s statistics, this multiplex features the smallest so-called “IMAX” screen in the USA that isn’t crammed into a cruise ship.

saw ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ on the Dolby Cinema screen last week and I was beyond impressed, granted the film was shot in 70mm, the DCP’s ‘Dolby Vision’ color grading looked simply gorgeous. The Dolby Atmos mix was okay not the best, but with the side walls getting audio panning, that wouldn’t be possible in 5.1 or 7.1 speaker configuration, the music and select sound effects gave an aural ‘wideness’ to the soundfield.

although this wasn’t never a problem here, AMC added blue floor lighting like they have done at Tyson’s Corner Dolby Cinema screen.
