as other members have noted, yes the Atlas Theatre has reopened but not as a film venue.

I didn’t know they lt up the blade considering the present state the building is in. I have been driving on H street the last few days. There is a crane set up towards the back and the building sits exposed to the eliments. It is sad to see that the rest of the area is so run down.

“The work is proceeding in every part of the site now.” The next milestone will be replacing the roof on the old movie theatre space this winter. The masonry wall extensions can be seen on the south wall of that space, as well as the rear of the Joy of Motion studio that occupies the former Safeway. The increased height will enable theatre and dance companies to creatively set and light their performances in both the fixed-seat theatre (276 capacity) and flex-seat theatre (300 capacity). Both spaces will be ready for the fall season in 2006, which will include gala opening events and performances in late October.

The facade, blade sign and marquee have been beautifully restored. The neon really brightens up that stretch of H Street, which is beginning to make a comeback from decades of disinvestment and abandonment.

Is this bad-boy open again?
