The Town Theatre Group operated the Annandale for only a short time. NTI took over operations along with the Barracks Road Theatre in Charlottesville, VA.

The November 2, 1964, issue of Boxoffice said that the Annandale Theatre had recently opened. It also named the architect as Dwight G. Chase, and said that interior decoration was by Sydell Sandy, Alexandria. The house was operated by the Town Theatre Group.

According to the July 13, 1964, issue of Boxoffice Magazine, the Annandale Theatre was nearing completion. The 1000 seat house was to have a 60 foot screen, six channel stereo sound, and 70mm projection equipment.

The article mentioned that owner Don King was also building a nearly identical house called the Springfield Center Theatre, which I would guess is this one, judging from the description in the comment by rlvjr. The Springfield house was slated for a September opening.
