New movie theater to open in time for summer blockbusters

Loudoun County will have its newest movie theater up and running on the grounds of the multi-use One Loudoun development in the next several months.

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has announced an early May opening of its first location in the Washington D.C. region.

The 32,000-square-foot movie theater and restaurant will bring the brand’s acclaimed dining options and unique movie-related events.

Currently, the new Alamo at One Loudoun is two-thirds completed, with exterior walls up, roof installed and electricity and sound panels being added within weeks.

“We can’t wait for Loudoun County to experience first-hand why Time Magazine calls us ‘the best theater ever,’” said Anthony Coco, franchise partner with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. “I think Alamo’s signature touches will make us a hit as we expand into the Washington region.”

Upon completion, the location will feature 792 seats and eight auditoriums, each equipped with state-of-the-art Sony 4K projectors for an all-digital presentation.

In addition to the superior audio visual equipment, the layout of each auditorium eliminates the traditional front row, ensuring every seat in the house allows for a great viewing experience.

With their grand opening, Alamo is planning a series of events for the new theater, including festivities surrounding the release of several eagerly anticipated summer blockbusters, sneak previews with discounted tickets and half-priced food, and Alamo’s famous “Rolling Roadshow” events.


The next exciting phase is to see which movie theater survives.  You’ll have the one at the Leesburg Wegmans, Brambleton, Dulles Town Center, and this one.  Not to mention Sterling, which isn’t all that far away either.

Personally, I agree with cowbell.  I’ll take my 60” plasma, blu-ray player, Netflix, surround sound, comfy chair, and “pause” button over any of these.  For the $40 it costs for two people to go with a popcorn and drink, I can buy 4 blu-rays.

Just what we need another movie Theater. Dulles mall opening Movie theaters this year too. I love my movie theater room, reclyners with cup holders and not other people. And only costs $5-8 for the movie. Food and beer(and wine) cheap.

We’ve had one in Winchester for several years now.  Nice theater but do not get too excited about the food.  Also service during the actual movie is a bit awkward.  Come on over the mountain if you want to test-drive this set-up before May!

It’s just too bad that Hollyweird isn’t producing very many worthwhile films anymore.
