The newest theater in town -- the West End Cinema -- focuses on indie and international fare, as well as documentaries. It opens this weekend in the space formerly occupied by the Cineplex Odeon Inner Circle, a space that's been empty for a decade. Among the films on tap are Howl, starring James Franco as legendary gay poet Allen Ginsberg, put on trial for obscenity; and Gerrymandering, documentary about politicians doing everything they can to stay in power. West End Cinema, 2301 M St. NW. Call 202-419-FILM or visit westendcinema.com.
