Me: Gosh, I really can’t wait to see (insert movie name here)! It comes out next week!

countless months later…

Me: Gosh, I can’t believe I missed (insert movie name here) in theaters! It will be forever until it comes out on DVD, Netflix, On Demand, etc.

Well, I recently took a trip to West End Cinema and now I have a solution for catching popular flicks that have outlived their moments in popular theaters, but aren’t quite ready to come to a TV set near you. West End Cinema is a small movie theater that was established by some DC movie lovers. West End Cinema, or WEC, “shows independent, foreign, and documentary films, especially ones that we feel offer new intellectual and cultural perspectives to our audience.”

West End Cinema is located in the lower level of an office building at 2301 M Street, NW

WEC itself is tiny, and each individual theater only has around 50 seats (let’s call it intimate), but you get the feel of a good old-fashioned theater, popcorn and all, along with the added bonus of a full bar, gourmet sandwiches and other treats. Plus, you get to see films that are stuck in movie purgatory!

This week you can catch:

My Week with Marilyn
Young Adult
Norwegian Wood
Le Havre

West End’s site offers previews for each of the movies – check them out here. I for one can’t wait to see My Week with Marilyn and Norwegian Wood!
