American Theater


104-108 Rhode Island Avenue, NW

A popular venue for entertainment and community events, the American Theater building has served as an anchor for Bloomingdale during periods of stability and change. It was a prime factor in the development of the neighborhood. The theater and nearby row of shops created a true commercial and community center. In this way it exemplifies the role theaters played throughout DC. The structure continues to be a neighborhood social center.
