When many of us were growing up, going to the movies meant standing in multiple lines. First, we had to buy tickets, then we had to wait to enter the theater. Next, the concession line always took forever. Finally, we’d get into the auditorium and make a beeline for our favorite seats, just hoping no one had already snagged them.
Cut to today. The ShowPlace ICON at The Boro is completely changing how we see and experience movies.
Before you even leave the house, you can reserve your seats and order food and drinks online — then have it waiting for you when you arrive. There’s also the option to order at one of the many kiosks in the lobby.
In the auditorium, you’ll find plush, heated recliners, wall-to-wall screens and digital projection. The larger auditoriums are equipped with Dolby Atmos immersive sound and 4K Laser projection.
This 14-screen theatre shows everything from blockbuster hits to specialty films. It even plays big events that are even better when you watch them on the big screen, like UFC fights, concerts and the WWE Summer Slam. For instance, this fall you can watch The MET Opera live.
And be sure to keep an eye out for the anticipated theatre bar and ICON Bistro, scheduled to open in the coming weeks. They’ll feature an entirely new menu, but until then guests can still enjoy select beer, wine and cocktails from the expanded concession menu.
Best yet: For the next several weeks, ShowPlace ICON has a special offer for anyone signing up for Extras, its free membership club. When you sign up as a Tysons member by August 15, you’ll get two free movie tickets.
Enjoy the experience!

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
