Opened by Hoyt’s in 1998, the Potomac Yard 16 is located in the Potomac Yard Shopping Center just south of the Pentagon on Route 1 in Alexandria, Virginia. Every house featured stadium seating and digital sound. The two largest screens were 58 by 32 feet. Rooms range from 150 to 400 seats.
The theatre was one of the early major components of the extensive redevelopment of the area that connects the Pentagon/Crystal City portion of Arlington with historic Old Town, Alexandria. It was taken over by Regal in 2004.
Closed since March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the movie theatre’s 18.7 acre site, mostly surface parking, was demolished in early-2021, to build a pump station as part of Virginia Tech’s expansion. All of North Potomac Yard, including the shopping center opposite the movie theatre, will be developed.
There was a chink of hope for the theatre when in September 2020, it was reported that the Alexandria Board of Architectural Review would consider a permit to demolish the theatre, with a city staff report that the theatre “is an example of a typical multi-screen movie theatre built during the late-1990’s throughout the region”. That failed to get passed. The area was a rail yard from 1906 to 1989.
