The West End still looks very much like it should be showing movies, despite not having done so in nearly eighty years. It makes very good use of a very awkward lot (triangular), but was probably too little too early. Though the exterior, with its beaux-arts cupola and rounded entrance, is lovely, the interior was probably a little odd and the theatre doesn't seem to have ever competed very well with the neighboring Lord Baltimore. When the much larger and much more lush Capitol was built a block away, the West End closed for good.
