Its sad to read about a local venue closing. Unfortunately, the blog from residents in the area all seem to agree the place was poorly run. Statements about a dirty venue and bad customer service does not sound good, although it managed to survive for ten years.

This is a shame. When I lived in the DC area saw Nobody’s Fool with my wife who lost an earring here.

With a ton of AMC operated screens in the area, this should have been a no-brainer as an art house
