TAKOMA THEATER

 

The Takoma Theater was constructed in 1923 in the Takoma Park, D.C. neighborhood as an amenity for local residents. Designed in a Greek Revival style by the noted theater architect John Jacob Zink, the original brick masonry and steel‐trussed structure has remained a centerpiece of the neighborhood, serving as a working movie theater until 1980. After 2 decades of independent ownership and unsuccessful schemes for redevelopment, Cunningham | Quill was retained by the current owner to restore and adaptively reuse the theater for office and retail use.
