Rivertowne Movie Theatre Part II

Residents of Oxon Hill from years ago may remember the days of going out to the movies at the movie theatre in the Rivertowne Commons Market Place. 

AMC Rivertowne 12 boasted 12 screening rooms and between 153 to 320 seats in each screening room.  In 2006 the theatre was closed, as the 20-year lease expired and the AMC company left Oxon Hill

Now Spotlight Amusements has picked up the space and is looking to revitalize the once popular movie theatre location.  This time, the movie theatre space will have seating that ranges between 150 to 600 people in each screening room, with at least three theatres with stadium-style seating, and 3-D capabilities. 

It was speculated for a while that the space that the AMC theatre occupied would actually turn into a Best Buy but the deal with the electronic retailer fell through due to lack of space in the vacant theatre.  The opening of the new theatre is expected in mid-January.
