Make a Cameo at Angelika Mosaic

The master of indie cinemas opens in Fairfax

angelika mosaic!

Dear John,

We come from different worlds: You’re a roughneck with an ear for surround sound, and I’m a girl with an eye for subtitles. But I picture us together, happy in the suburbs — at least now that Angelika Mosaic is open in Fairfax.

Let’s meet in the lobby under the three-tier crystal chandelier before swinging by the cafe or lounge for creative concessions (imagined by Top Chef alumna Lee Anne Wong) cast opposite beer, wine, and champagne. There’s still plenty of popcorn — and through October 31, it’s free.

Before we sink into velour stadium seats, we’ll have to agree on one of six flicks. The opening lineup includes The Master, Sundance darling Hello I Must Be Going, and the 75th anniversary re-release of Jean Renoir’s antiwar classic, Grand Illusion.

What has two thumbs up and loves indie movies? This girl.
