801 Wayne Avenue
Suite G-100
Silver Spring, MD 20910


As of January 1, 2017, Docs In Progress will be at a new location in downtown Silver Spring, MD. We are in an office building located at the corner of Wayne Avenue and Cedar Lane (behind the St Michael the Archangel Catholic Church which is behind the Whole Foods parking lot). We are an easy walk from Veteran's Plaza (the ice rink), the Silver Spring Library, the Silver Spring Metro station, and parking options.

From the Silver Spring Metro, you can walk up Colesville and then up Wayne Avenue for the shortest and most direct route or stop on Ellsworth or other nearby streets if you are planning to eat first.

If you prefer an alternative to the 12 minute walk from the Metro, check out the free RideOn VanGo 28 Circulator Shuttle. Ask the driver to let you off at the stop closest to Wayne and Fenton. From there, we are only a block up Wayne.

If you are driving, there is limited visitor parking in the lot behind our building (enter from Cedar). Please do NOT park in any spots which say Employee Parking. If the lot is full, the nearest parking garages are the Wayne Avenue Garage or the Town Square Garage (enter from Ellsworth or Roeder). They are each noted on the map below with a P. On weekdays, parking is $1 per hour until 9 pm if you enter the garage before 7 pm. If you enter the garage after 7 pm, it is free. Parking is free on weekends. Both garages are open 24/7. Please DO NOT park in the Whole Foods Parking Lot since they have stringent towing enforcement.

Once in the office building, take the elevator down to the G level and you will find us in Suite G-100. If you need to enter the building with a ramp, you can do so from the back of the building where the parking area is (there are limited visitor spots there too).

If you arrive at our building after 7:30 pm or are coming for a Sunday program, you will also need to enter from the back of the building and get buzzed in using the door buzzer since the building is technically closed at that time. Once buzzed in or, upon exiting, please do not hold the door open for longer than 30 seconds since it will set off the alarm.


Our screenings in Washington DC take place at the George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs Building at 805 21st Street, NW Washington DC.  The building is located at the corner of 21st and H Streets in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood.  The closest Metro stations are Foggy Bottom or Farragut West. There are campus garages on H Street and I Streets which charge about $10 in the evenings.  Street parking is free after 6:30 pm, but is limited to two hours. 

Takoma Park screenings take place at the Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium at 7500 Maple Avenue in Takoma Park, MD.  The Community Center is off Philadelphia Avenue between Piney Branch and Carroll.  Parking is free.  If taking Metro, the walk from the Takoma Park Metro Station is about 20 minutes or you can take Ride-On Buses 25 (towards Langley Park) or 12 (towards Silver Spring) to the Community Center.  Click here for a Google Map
