Robert K. Headley’s book ‘Motion Picture Exhibition in Washington DC’ lists this as the Park Theatre. Opened on July 1, 1924 with 870 seats. It closed in 1929, unable to compete with the Tivoli Theatre which had opened the same year, a mile south down the road.

Special thanks to Ken Roe for his research on this theatre.

I’m working at the former Park now, which is being converted into a dance space. We’re trying to dig up anything we can on the theater’s history but are having a hard time- it seems it really was upstaged by the nearby Tivoli! I would love to hear anything you remember about the theatre!
