The Miracle Theatre at 535 8th St. SE is expected to begin showing films sometime this fall, the theater has tweeted. National Community Church’s Theater Church currently uses the space for weekend services.

But the cinema has yet to announce exactly when it will start showing second-run flicks.

A National Community Church representative couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

The century-old theater, originally called the Meader Theater, was purchased by National Community Church and renamed the Miracle Theatre in 2011. The theater is one of the church’s three D.C. locations.

“We have restored the building’s rich history of a vaudeville show house and movie theater as another place where the church and marketplace intersect,” Theater Church’s website says.

    Considering the sad state of major motion pictures at this moment with horrible remakes and horrific sequels I would say all movie theaters at this point would qualify as second run movie theaters.

    Maybe ‘Shoots’ isn’t the best word choice for a movie theater these days…
