At­las Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter

An an­chor of re­vi­tal­ized H Street NE, this build­ing has stood sen­tinel since 1938, when it de­buted as a movie palace. The 1968 ri­ots laid the neigh­bor­hood low, but in 2005 a $22 mil­lion ren­o­va­tion trans­formed the space into a per­form­ing arts mecca. Now en­ter­tain­ment buffs rel­ish a full slate of con­certs and plays, like dar­ing works from Mo­saic The­ater Com­pany, and find their groove in dance classes with Joy of Mo­tion.
