If you haven’t heard – there’s a new theater in my town. And it ain’t no traditional multiplex. It’s an art cinema – do you know what that means? IT SHOWS DOCUMENTARIES!!!! In addition to other indie art films, this theater has a quite impressive line-up of documentaries, and it’s only its first month in existence.
Conveniently located at 23rd and M Street NW, Washington, DC – West End Cinema promises to help enrich the local art film scene. We went out to see a film there last weekend and I loved it. A nice, intimate feeling – fancy beers on tap, friendly service, and oh yeah, documentaries on screen. Sweet.
I still love E Street Cinema, and it remains to be seen if the market can hold two art movie houses in one town, but I have faith. We are DC. We like our entertainment smart. We like our local businesses healthy. We are one of the largest documentary film communities in the country. I can’t wait to see more movies!
