The Esquire opened on March 14, 1940. Architect William David trimmed the art deco facade with red Chinese tile. Interior design was by Miguel Santocono.

Over the years, the theater was eventually triplexed and closed in 1982 and converted into office space. With the renaissance of the K Street mall, the Esquire (along with its neighboring Studio Theatre) was incorporated into the Esquire Plaza office building. All but the facades of the theaters were demolished. The Esquire's auditorium was rebuilt as an IMAX theater and the Studio was rebuilt as a restaurant. The theater reopened in 1999.
