Round House Theatre officials are hoping to serve wine and beer to go along with performances and other events at the downtown Bethesda venue, according to the hearing schedule of the Montgomery County Board of License Commissioners.
The theater’s application for the county’s Special Theater License is scheduled to go before the Board on Feb. 21.
Round House (4545 East-West Highway) hopes to take advantage of the $100-per-year license that allows a performing arts theater or a movie theater operated by a nonprofit organization to sell beer and light wine when snacks are served, one hour before and after a performance and at receptions before and after a performance.
In November, the Bethesda Row Cinema was granted an alcohol license to serve beer, wine and liquor at a new bar soon to be build in the Woodmont Avenue theater.
A request for comment from Round House Theatre, which receives major funding support from Montgomery County, was not returned.
