Watching a movie gives audiences a chance to capture that moment’s resonant je ne sais quoi, which is French for “popcorn smell.” Rejoice in artful concessions with today's Groupon: for $11, you get two adult admissions (up to a $22 value) and one large popcorn (a $6.33 value, including tax) at West End Cinema (up to a $28.33 total value).

West End Cinema grew from a gaggle of cinema lovers who pined for a place to watch flicks that challenged their perspectives and the notion that every good film must star a talking animal. Foreign, independent, and documentary films project daily from the cinema's sequestered theater, a once-orphaned cineplex made over to the height of art-house grandeur. Along with off-the-main movies, West End Cinema piques palates with both classic and unconventional concessions. Lauded as D.C.'s best popcorn by TBD.com, a large tub sates sodium-starved palates without the hassle of romancing a pretzel salesman, and the buttered bits may be paired with a beverage from the full on-site bar, or augmented by a gourmet sandwich, slice of baklava, or candy (not included with the value of today's Groupon).

West End Cinema

Founded by a ring of cinephiles who set out to rehab an abandoned theater just north of George Washington University, West End Cinema screens foreign, independent, and documentary films that open up new intellectual and cultural vistas. Films run the genre gamut from quirky, independent dramedies and comedramas to special live events such as Opera in Cinema or Ballet in Cinema. Sunset-orange and slate walls and recessed lighting usher guests from a glass-fronted lobby into three cozy theaters, each of which seats between 50 and 100 watchers. On the way, they'll pass an abundantly stocked concession stand, where they can harvest drinks from a full bar, baklava, and gourmet sandwiches along with additional children from the sour patch.
