This was pretty much the only big single-screen for miles in the 70’s. Got a lot of good mileage out of the Pike; endlessly stood in line in freezing weather there to see “Superman” in 1978; saw many other titles there as well — “Logan’s Run,” “Capricorn One,” “Star Wars” and finally “All of Me” in 1984. Had no idea “Car Wash” premiered there; that’s cool. (And thanks for the info, sconnell1.)

The Pike theater opened on Wednesday, May 27, 1964 with “The Pink Panther” which opened in its local run with many other theaters after playing 9 weeks at RKO Keith’s in downtown D.C.

there was a movie theater here? I honestly don’t remember seeing anything here, but did see movies now and then up the Pike at the Congressional 5.
