Regal (Hoyts) Cinemas at Potomac Yard

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 features stadium seating and digital sound. The two largest screens are 58 by 32 feet. Rooms range from 150 to 400 seats.

The theater 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.

Opened by Hoyts! That’s why the two huge screens.

I HAVE BEEN TO THIS THEATER ABOUT 6 TIMES,BUT why,or why,are NEWER theaters being listed.Multiplexes are not in keeping with the spirit of this site’s origins,I thought.I wish there was a seperate listing,perhaps,for new theaters.i wish there was a seperate section for grand,old theaters that still show MOVIES,like the Byrd and Commodore.

I saw Star Wars: Episode One The Phantom Menace here way back in ‘99. Like similar Hoyt multiplexes of this site, they had 2 BIG theaters and several smaller ones. The BIGGER auditoriums..some (I’m guessing 400-500 seat capacity with the bigger 50-60 ft screens) had Dolby EX.

When my friend passed away, I seldom, if ever went back to this place. The proliferation of gang-type crowds were a turn off.

I just read today that the place is for sale, along with its Hunt Valley counterpart. This facility supposedly is 75,000 sq. ft.

I don’t when they did the change over but all the screens are digital projection now. They still have the audio placards (DTS, Dolby Digital, SDDS) but since digital projection audio is LPCM it’s odd they retained them. I asked if any screen featured 7.1 but management said no, which is odd, since Dolby EX can easily been converted to playback 7.1

what’s the deal with this theater – is it making money or not? Seeing and knowing of the proposed plans of raising the adjacent strip mall/parking lot as well as the theater itself – the future plans don’t make any mention if the theater will be implemented in the new design – has anyone heard, read or know what Alexandria has in the cards for the new ‘North Potomac Yards’ area – in terms if Regal is coming back or not?
