Fairfax, VA: Angelika Film Center & Cafe to Open in September 2012

Posted on Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 4:08 PM by Scott Jentsch

The Angelika Film Center & Cafe in Fairfax, Virginia is set to open in September 2012, according to a press release issued by parent company Reading International, Inc.

The new 8-screen movie theater is located at Mosaic, a development consisting of retail, dining, entertainment, and residential establishments located about 10 minutes east of downtown Fairfax (where I-66 and I-495 meet). Customers will be greeted by a three-level glass-enclosed lobby (see photo to the left) that includes a cafe, a lounge, and the concession stand.

Food choices at the theater will consist of a menu created by Chef Lee Anne Wong, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute, former finalist on Bravo's Top Chef, and a contributor on the Cooking Channel's Unique Eats. Guests will be able to enjoy their food and drinks (including beer, wine, and champagne) in the cafe, lounge, or in the auditorium while watching a movie.

The press release says that the Angelika at Mosaic will feature specialty film programming, local film festivals, and other programs to appeal to "sophisticated filmgoers."

“The Angelika’s goal is to become the premiere cinema in the greater D.C. area,” said Ellen Cotter, chief operating officer of the US Cinema division of Reading International, Inc. “We are committed to offering exceptional service and a superior and different movie-­‐going experience at Mosaic.”

Reading International has three other Angelika locations, one in New York and two in Texas. Visiting the showtimes pages for those theaters most likely will give you an idea of the kind of movies that the Fairfax location will offer its customers. When it opens, the Angelika Film Center and Cafe will be the fifteenth location for the theater chain.
