According to our local paper, the Old Town Theater is closed. The web site link takes you to the Comedy Zone, D.C. (in Arlington VA). I think I have to "rate" the attraction in order to post this. As others mentioned, it's been through several...More

OTT has gone through transformations but I think it's now found it's groove. It's nice to have wine and real food in a movie theatre and those types of movie theatres are now becoming popular like Angelika over in Merrifield at the new Mosaic District....More

Never again. This theater is historic, sort of well-restored (wish they'd done some more research and exploration before charging through--patience is a virtue for a reason), and should have been an amazing venue, but it's so poorly managed and has almost zero marketing, it's really...More

I have been to the Old Town Theater more than 10 times so far and it is remarkable what a transition this venue has made in the past 10 months. I have seen fantastic live music, nationally-touring and local comedians, and even a TEDx conference!...More

The theater looks incredible since the renovation in 2012! It's now a very classy venue with a great restaurant upstairs, overlooking King Street. Modern conveniences but old-fashioned charm. My favorite--the comedy. Never disappointed!
