Atlas Performing Arts Center
Beyond the throwback façade and ticket window, visitors find a sophisticated lobby worthy of cocktail parties. The Atlas Theater was originally built in 1938 by the Kogod-Burka movie chain, the same company which built Cleveland Park’s Uptown Theater. Ascend the stairs to the two theaters, which have comfortable seating, an oversized screen, and a revolving line-up of live performances. Events range from theatre performances to dance to music, even film. During the summer, the Atlas offers a summer film series, which has Sunday screenings for $2 a person.
