Serious safety incident
Nov 2018 • Couples
This theatre was our go-to spot until my girlfriend was touched inappropriately and against her wishes by another patron (Nov. 11, 2018, 4:15 pm show of Bohemian Rhapsody). Her assailant fled the theatre before I understood all what happened. When confronted with the issues afterward, management offered no apology, demonstrated a dismissive attitude, and when pressed for why follow-up took an entire day, they claimed, "the theatre was busy due to the holiday." This type of attitude is inexcusable, especially given the current political and cultural dynamic. I am continuing to follow-up with management, but thus far the company has shown zero interest in pursuing the correct course of action. I cannot, in good conscience, recommend this theatre to anyone. If I could give this theatre a negative rating, I would.

Just 1 block from the Union Market and across from Gallaudet University this arthouse theatre is a perfect little spot to view a movie. We did not purchase tickets ahead of time and were surprised to be able to walk right in without waiting - especially since it was the opening weekend of a first-run movie. They have beer on tap, in bottles as well as traditional "movie fare" Great spot

This is a nice place to see a movie. Each theatre has only about 50 seats, so if it's a new movie you are going to see, either show up 20 minutes early or purchase tickets ahead of time. The only drawback is the price of their popcorn and canned pop.

Came here randomly for a movie, minus the one fluorescent light bulb that stayed on till the movie started it was a great theater. Doesn't have those fancy chairs but it's a great atmosphere.

This is the DC instance of the well known Angelika Film Center in NYC (I used to live in NYC and went there a lot). This theatre is in much the same mold - big lobby with movie posters and places to sit down. The selection of food and drink (including beer) is quite good. The only drawback is that there isn't any hot food (e.g. hot dogs, fresh popcorn, etc), everything is packaged products (but high end ones). Generally, you can park on the street nearby; though there's no parking lot. They show a lot of indie and foreign films, of course, as that is Angelika's reason for being. Last I was there, I Saw an anime film called "Kizumonogatari: Part 1" and enjoyed myself. I previous reviewer noted that the "popup" aspect was borne out by the fact that folding chairs are in each of the screening rooms. Now, that has changed and some proper seats have been put in. Lastly, when you buy your ticket, they give you the chance to pick what seat you want, as they are numbered.

Really enjoy this little Art House theater. It's three screens always have an interesting variety of movies. The staff are very friendly and the concessions selection is much nicer and not as unreasonable over-priced as AMC, Loews or Regal chain theaters. It's also close to the Union Market so you can get a great meal, enjoy the lively atmosphere, relax a little and then walk over to the theater.

By Pop up in the theater name they really mean pop up-there are chairs (little nicer than fold up but not by a lot) on a concrete floor, a HUGE screen with a projection in the back of the place, speakers on the sides-their is a snack bar with REAL popcorn and some candies, they even have volcano water, tea , coffee, and sodas. Very nice selection of films and of theater and performances. Went to see IT Follows 3 weeks before it was announced to open nationwide-and will DEF travel here again to see something else in limited release. Very clean, very small theater -about 6 screens- nice lobby with a lounge area with couches, and tables and chairs. Highly recommend esp if you are tired of the local cineplex scene.

No M&m peanuts though!! Otherwise, great little theatre. It was very clean. The screen was a great size. Acoustics were good. Lots of space to sit. We saw "The Last Five Years " and it was good!!

The Angelika Pop-Up Cinema is the latest addition to Washington, D.C.'s independent cinemas and it is a great one. Three big screens (unlike one of our other small indies in town with much smaller screens), comfortable standard theater seats, a vast array of munchies and drinks, plus the ticket prices are a couple of bucks less than your typical movie house. Staff could not be more helpful. Their films are not your standard Hollywood fare although they do have Hollywood films ("Boyhood", "Whiplash") but also show a good selection of foreign films. Located in Northeast DC just north of Union Market, hopefully this "pop-up" cinema will be around for a long, long time. Because of it's proximity to fabulous Union Market (just across the street) you could do a shopping trip or a lunch or dinner there and hop over the Angelika for a movie. Love this place!
