This Streamline-style movie house opened on November 5, 1945 in the Anacostia neighborhood of Washington, and was designed by John Eberson with his son, Drew. After it closed as a movie theater in 1968, it was used in the 1970’s as a concert venue and later a disco, but was then closed for years, and finally demolished.
