Here's the latest in the What We're Missing series: a movie theater. A couple people mentioned it in other posts, and it's an interesting point. I'm thinking not a Gallery Place-style megaplex, I wouldn't want the traffic and such, but maybe something like the Uptown or even like Visions in Dupont.
Visions, which is now closed, used to show art movies, older movies, cult flicks, and stuff like that. They also used to have a $10 "drain the keg" night on weekends, where you'd watch a movie and drink beer from a keg. It was great place for a date or just something fun to do.
I think if this were to happen, it'd have to be off 14th Street, maybe towards Georgia Ave somewhere. There's a lot of empty buildings that way, so any entrepreneurs out there should get on it!
What do you think? Good idea or lame?
