The Angelika Comes to Virginia!

posted by Nell Minow

The Angelika theater in New York is legendary for the quality of its films and attention to detail in showing them.  With theaters in San Diego and Texas, the Angelika is now building their 27th theater in suburban Falls Church, Virginia.  I was lucky enough to get a tour of the construction site this morning and was blown away by what they are doing.  Everything is state of the art and beyond with the latest technology for projection and sound.  It will be available for conferences, meetings, parties and fundraisers.

The building is LEED certified and accessible.  There are eight screens, digital and 35 mm, and one outdoors for summer evening screenings under the stars.  The chef for the cafe was featured on “Top Chef” and they assure me the food will be delicious, easy to eat from your seat in the theater, and not noisy or smelly to make the neighbors won’t be distracted.  It is part of an enormous new development that includes a Target store and a variety of shops and restaurants, with plenty of parking and walking distance from the Dun Loring Metro.  It is scheduled to open in September.  Until then, check out the progress on Facebook and stay tuned for updates here as well!
