Whither the Uptown Theater?

In a recent blog entry Washington Post Columnist Marc Fisher opines about the state of the Uptown Theater, the grande dame of Cleveland Park, and district cinema houses.

Can the Uptown become an independent theater a la the Avalon?

The problem is, the art deco structure is landmarked both for its architecture and it use, meaning as I understand it, it always will need to be a theater. What happens if there are no takers?

This, on the heels of the NW Current reporting that the AMC Theater at 4000 Wisconsin Avenue is slated to close soon.
