Landmark Theaters completed its renovation of the Bethesda Row Cinema today, just in time for a private company event tonight and tomorrow’s reopening to the public.
The company installed a full-service bar, lounge areas and new leather seats that movie-goers can now reserve before they go to see a show. The 140,000-square-foot theater, opened in 2002, now has RealD 3D projection, new screens, sound systems and a new menu.
The front of the building (7235 Woodmont Ave.) has a new marquee with a digital board of showtimes and a set of personal ticket kiosks are inside. The descent into the theater lobby now includes a view of a shimmering screen of hanging crystals.
On Friday, the theater will re-open with Academy Award nominee “Kon-Tiki,” and “Max Manus: Man of War,” before “The Great Gatsby” remake starts on May 10.
