This beautiful neighborhood theater fell victim to the poison of high crime and urban decay. Although the Martin Luther King riots were the death knell for most Washington theaters, the VILLAGE fell victim long before that. Washingtonians would not believe that all of our city was essentially crime-free in the 1950’s, but it was. In the early 1960’s crime spread like weeds, and this northeast area was plagued by nightly robbery, muggings, murder. When liberal toleration of crime takes over, casual family moviegoing is no longer an option.
