In the Spring of 1975, Circle theatre circuit purchased a 368 seat theatre that had been converted in 1969 from a church into a moviehouse. The movie theatre opened on August 17, 1977 with Craig Russell in “Outrageous”. Later, three more, smaller auditoriums were added, making this the Circle West End 1-4. In 1985, a separate theatre, the West End 5-7 was built. By the 1980’s, movies shown were mostly mainstream as arthouse films were shown at the movie theatres at Dupont Circle. Cineplex Odeon tookover when they purchased the Circle chain late in 1987. As early as the opening in 1988 by AMC of the Union Station multiplex, this theatre became obsolete. It has since closed and been demolished. The Ritz Carlton residences (next door to the hotel) was built in its place.
