My dad was its main projectionist from around 1969/1970 to 1973. In fact I remember when Poseidon Adventure played at the theater. I remember its poster in a frame right by the door that lead up the stairs to where my dad worked.

I remember the Saturday matinees that they had. it was co-sponsored by a nearby McDonald’s and Gulf Gas station. I remember when the 1960s Batman movie play at the matinee.

this is where I saw The Poseidon Adventure in December 1972 and my life was changed forever.

The Americana was a Roth’s theater. It opened on 5/30/67 with firs-run engagement of A POPPY IS ALSO A FLOWER which was based on a story by Ian Fleming, and starred an international cast that featured Stephen Boyd, Trevor Howard, Senta Berger, Yul Brynner, and Rita Hayworth. The film opened at several other local theaterson this date, and did not play in downtown D.C.

The building which currently occupies the 7857 Heritage Drive address is a three story office complex which appears to have been constructed within the last ten years. The status should be changed to Demolished.
