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.”

Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Michael O’Sullivan has worked since 1993 at The Washington Post, where he covers art, film and other forms of popular — and unpopular — culture.
