D.C. has needed more and better movie theaters, especially in the eastern part of the city.  Earlier this year, if you lived east of downtown, the choices were traveling across the city to Georgetown, going to the nice but limited E Street Cinema, viewing a movie in the rundown Regal Cinema in Gallery Place, or going to the suburbs.  Edens promised to change all of this by announcing it would put an upscale Angelika Film Center in the second phase of its Union Market building.  However, that permanent theater will not be built for several years.  In the meantime, Edens converted part of a building the company owns a block north of Union Market into a pop-up movie theater to preview the future permanent theater.  The pop-up currently offers around four different films with multiple showings throughout the day.  There is a mix of recently released mainstream films, indie films, and classics (including It’s a Wonderful Life before Christmas).
