Another Earth, a film which has tremendous hype and buzz after its debut at prestigious, international film festivals, is opening today at Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema.
Star and screenwriter Brit Marling is a native of this area, and a graduate of Georgetown University.
This thought-provoking film about two alternate Earths, and the dilemma of which of two lives to choose, is expected to pick up a number of Oscar nominations. So instead of trying to catch up the week before the Academy Awards - and considering that your Netflix price will probably be more than the first-run ticket price by then(!!) - why not make plans to catch this one on opening night?
Get your tickets here, before they're gone!
Make a date night of it by dining at one of the great restaurants around Bethesda Row, such as:
In between the restaurant and the theatre is dessert: ice cream at the brand-new Haagen-Dazs!
The Bethesda Row Cinema snack bar is not just the basic movie fare, so there's plenty on the menu if you're hungry at the movie.
Of course, if art-house movies aren't your speed, you can head over to the corner of Auburn and Norfolk Avenues at 9pm for the original Rocky, FREE on the outdoor screen. Bethesda Outdoor Movies! But if you think you've escaped art-house cinema, you may have forgotten that Rocky was an Academy Award winner, too! And had one of the most unpredictable endings in movie history. A real American cinema classic, or a new one that may be considered so in the future - alternate movies, alternate worlds - your choice tonight in downtown Bethesda.
"Until next time, the balcony is closed."
