I wonder what this means for the Regal across the street at Countryside.

DULLES TOWN CENTER TO OPEN
STATE-OF-THE-ART REGAL 10-SCREEN CINEMA

We are excited to announce that Regal Entertainment Group, has signed an agreement to open a 10-screen state of the art cinema at Dulles Town Center. The theater will contain approximately 2,000 stadium seats, and all-digital projection for 10 screens including a giant screen presentation called the Regal Premium Experience. Groundbreaking is scheduled for later this year, with a planned opening in 2013.
The theater box office will be located adjacent to a new mall entrance that will open next year. The mall will be open during the entire construction process.

does this mean we're going BACK to mall movie theaters? It seemed like we had moved away from that for a while.

You're right, that might mean the end of Countryside.

I would assume they would close the Countryside location. Since they're both Regal, at least it won't be a competitive battle with one eventually dying a slow, pitiful death.

A shame, though, as I usually try to avoid malls due to the crowded parking and such. I like the movie theater being away from the mall. And we JUST moved to Sterling, so we'd better try to get to the Regal before it gets shut down for the new one!

They just finished a lot of renovations on that theater. Why renovate, if you are just going to close down?

Interesting. When the mall opened in 1999 there were plans for a movie theater, but that obviously never became a reality, until now I suppose.

Now, if I can ever figure out if the BP station that's had a sign on site for years is ever going to open...

At any rate, good for Dulles Town Center. I frequent the mall and always like to see new business there.

Five years ago, Regal at Country Side was the only mainstream theater Loudoun had. (Tally Ho in Leesburg is a small and charming historical theater and only has two screens.) Then Brambleton built FOX Cinima, which was later purchased by Regal. Village of Leesburg just opened a Cobbs Theater. One Loudoun will open an Almo theater. Dulles Town Center announced the new Regal theater. Loudoun seems to have too many theaters, esp. Almo, the old Regal and the new Regal are really close to each other. I hope Western Loudoun county has a movie theater some day.

I didn't realize DTC was that new. We didn't move out this way until 2003.

We've been to Countryside many times. I thought it was one of the nicer theaters that we have been to in this area. It certainly had more movie selections than some of the others. I could usually see some of the less mainstream movies there - the non-blockbusters.

Not like we get out to movies much anymore...

I wouldn't mind seeing the Countryside Regal turned into some other sort of entertainment venue. A place to hear local music would be nice. A comedy club, maybe. Or, they could specialize in art movies.
