We. Love. Movies. We love them. From summer blockbusters to offbeat indie dramas, we want to see them all. But here in Washington, we realize that all those art house, off-the-beaten-path kinds of films can be hard to find. The reason for this is simple: there just aren't enough art house, off-the-beaten path kinds of theaters to show them. That's where we come in. We rallied a team of dedicated film buffs around us, found a deserted theater just begging for a makeover, and brought West End Cinema to life. We show independent, foreign, and documentary films, especially ones that we feel offer new intellectual and cultural perspectives to our audience.

The films themselves are obviously the point, here, but as we all know, great amenities can really be the cherry on top of your Sunday night at the cinema… or better yet, the olive in your martini. West End Cinema offers a full bar and a wide range of concessions, from popcorn to baklava to gourmet sandwiches. And yes, yes, we also have candy.

So, there you have it. Friends, fellow film buffs, random passersby, join us. Make West End Cinema your bridge to the wide world of film, a gathering place for the entire DC film community, a major patch in the cultural fabric of our nation's capital… or just come see a movie some time.  After all, there are a million stories out there, and we want to tell them all.
