I remember seeing ‘The Mutilator’ and ‘CHUD’ here, two really awful 80’s horror movies. Oh and ‘Flashdance’

Many great memories from this theatre. It may not have been the greatest look outside (or inside for that matter) but it was cozy. It was a great place to meet up with friends and every seat had a great view. Definitely a local theatre with many local fans. It also hired many of the local kids to work which always made it fun.

No shock that the exterior wasn’t more impressive than the interior. I saw a couple movies there in 1987 and 1988. As JodarMovieFan asserts, it wasn’t a “treasure.”

There is a vacant, one story building at this address which is slated to be demolished in order for condominiums to be built on the site. This building is rather non-descript and does not have any features which suggest that it might have once been a cinema.

This was a horrible theater that was probably the worst of the theaters that lined up Wisconsin Ave. My first and only visit to this place was in 1982 and I believe they closed sometime in the later 80s. The acoustics were horrible and, if memory serves me correctly had no stereo sound in any of the auditoriums. Sound insulation was lacking as you could hear two soundtracks for the price of one. This place was hardly a “treasure” by any stretch of the imagination.
