Wonder Woman 1984 in Georgetown

On the Big Screen

Two years after it filmed in the summer of 2018, Wonder Woman 1984 opens on Christmas Day in theaters and on HBO Max, and features several scenes shot in Georgetown. From the iconic old Georgetown theater, to the nostalgic Commander Salamander store and the Canal, we’re representing on the big screen!

Our social media contest kicks off on December 21 (details below), plus many of our businesses will be offering Wonder Woman-inspired discounts and promotions to celebrate the movie release. Stay tuned for more! (Photo credit: Chris Buckler)
