On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History recently announced plans to close its IMAX theater to make room for a larger cafeteria. Across town, another theater made recent news: the Cleveland Park community successfully fought to save the 22-foot-wide red “UPTOWN” sign on the Uptown Theater, which is operated by AMC. Kojo explores the region’s various types of movie theaters and the value they bring to their neighborhoods and the region at large.
