On April 12, 1978, Circle theaters opened the Tenley Circle Theatre as a twin theater with "Coming Home" and "A Little Night Music" The large house sat around 500. The smaller house sat around 200. A third auditorium was added in 1980.
In the late-1980’s, Circle was bought by Cineplex Odeon, which, though also opening the Wisconsin Avenue 6, continued to operate this very popular theater. The Tenley Circle closed in 1999. The theater was often used by film festivals, even after closing.
In March 2003 the state-of-the-art, 300-seat, Harold and Sylvia Greenberg Theatre opened in the former Tenley Circle space, funded by a $2 million gift by the theatre’s namesakes to American University. The theater is used by American University and the DC community for plays, performances, film screenings, meetings, and private functions.
