The Takoma Theatre is in the heart of the Takoma Park Historic District in Washington DC in Ward 4, just across the boundary from old town Takoma Park, MD.
The theatre anchors the south end of the Takoma Park business district on Fourth Street at Butternut, one block west of the Takoma Metro Station. The Old Town Takoma business district extends from the Theatre to the Takoma Station Metro, along Cedar and Carroll Streets, to Takoma Junction.
The Fourth Street corridor lies midway between two designated Main Streets: Upper Georgia Avenue and Old Town Takoma Park.
The Takoma Theatre is the only independent, diversified performing arts theatre in NW/NE DC in Ward 4 that includes neighborhoods of Brightwood, Brightwood Park, Manor Park, Shepherd Park, Colonial Village, North Portal Estates, Chevy Chase, Lamond-Riggs, Petworth, and Takoma.
