WASHINGTON — West End Cinema has seen a welcome resurgence in Foggy Bottom.

After closing in March 2015, the M Street gem underwent plush renovations in March 2016 to such success that it was voted Best Tiny Movie Theatre by Washington City Paper last year.

Now, the Landmark theater kicks off its first-ever Capital Classics Film Series, screening iconic movies every Wednesday at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. running Sept. 13 through Nov. 1.
