This 14 screen theatre was opened originally by the Hoyt’s chain around the same time that Potomac Yard 16 was opened. There are 10 theatres on one side of the building and 4 located on the other with a large lobby area in between. Regal acquired this location along with several of the other Hoyt’s locations in 2004. Since Regal came in there have been a few changes. They added a guest service area in the lobby, the box office was glassed in, and the concession stand saw a renovation. There were several different sound systems used when Hoyt’s opened. The seats are stationary and there are no removable armrests which have since been pretty standard in new builds.

This venue opened up in ‘97 or so. Just prior to this venue opening there was a twin venue opening just outside of Baltimore. I think the first movie I saw here was the sequel Babe: Pig in the City. When it first opened, the two largest theaters were two stories high and played movies loud. I think the original plan was to open a cafe that bridged the two big theaters but nothing ever came of it. There were restrooms upstairs as long as elevator access. These big theaters received the Dolby EX upgrade back in '99 when Star Wars: The Phantom Menace opened.

When Regal took over, this place went downhill. Projection was lousy with scratched film presentations. When Hoyts ran it, they had decent concessions such as freshly made coffee drinks. Regal tried to run it but many times employees just put up out of order signs. The many times I wrote to complain about the lousy service here met with the usual apologies and free passes.

Recently, there have been digital 3D upgrades, but I’ve stopped going here. Many times there are riff raff that come and unfriendly policemen who double as ushers. I remember my friend and I being ‘escorted’ to the auditorium and told where to stand and wait at a specific spot before entering. Not a good experience. Maybe the place has improved since I last visited in ‘09, but I have no interest in going back for now.
