Landmark Theatres 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.

    Looks like it was worth the wait — the renovations look beautiful. I wonder if they will allow moviegoers to bring their cocktails inside the theaters, and if they will be able to reserve exact seats?

      Yeah this looks like it is going to be pretty sweet. I know some theaters in NYC and CA reserve specific seats and by the looks of it Bethesda Row is looking to do the same. I’d be surprised if you couldn’t take your cocktails in since they allow soda and other stuff. Pumped for the grand opening!
