Landmark’s West End Cinema (2301 M St. N.W.) screens the Oscar-winning “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” Wednesday, July 11 at 1:304:30 and 7:30 p.m. 

Released in 1966, this explosive drama was an instant hit and has since become an American classic. Starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, the film centers around the tumultuous marriage of a middle-aged couple who bring another couple into their drama over an evening of sadistic “fun and games.” The late Edward Albee, author of the play from which it was faithfully adapted, was gay and the film is a gay classic despite all straight characters. 

Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at landmarktheatres.com. The theater is handicap and hard-of-hearing accessible.
