Suffragette Movie Opening at Agelika in Mosaic District/Merrifield
This weekend's limited release showings of Suffragette will likely determine the national distribution for the film. If the weekend's box office receipts are lackluster, the film will not stay in theaters very long.
The movie tells the story of the British suffragette movement. This is a story of empowerment that needs to be told, both the historical aspect and to create a connection to the tie-ins with today's lingering inequalities (pay gaps, under representation on boards, in elected office, etc.)
The all-female production team needs big box office receipts to assure the story is seen and heard across the country.
- Angelika Film Center (Falls Church, VA)
- ArcLight (Bethesda, MD)

Other cities with showings include Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, and Phoenix.
