Fairfax’s Cinema Arts Theatre is about to get a bit of healthy competition. (So, for that matter, are Landmark’s E Street and Bethesda Row cinemas, which for the last several years have owned the art-house film scene.) On September 21, the Angelika Film Center and Cafe — a posh, eight-screen multiplex specializing in indie and foreign fare — is scheduled to open in the new Mosaic retail, restaurant and residential development in Fairfax.

Located at the intersection of Lee Highway and Gallows Road, the three-story theater (part of a “boutique” chain with outlets in New York, Dallas and Plano, Tex.) will boast a lounge serving adult beverages and a cafe with a global-fusion menu created by Lee Anne Wong, a former finalist on “Top Chef.”

In addition to “The Master,” “Liberal Arts” and other films that you’ll find on a handful of screens, the Angelika’s opening week offerings will include an exclusive engagement of “Hello, I Must Be Going,” a rom-com starring Melanie Lynskey of “Two and a Half Men” and Christopher Abbott of “Girls.”
