Outdoor movies return to the Woodmont Triangle area of downtown Bethesda July 23-27, 2013, at 9:00 PM each evening. The annual outdoor movie series is organized and sponsored by Bethesda Urban Partnership. This is the ninth year, for those keeping score at home.
Movies will be shown at the corner of Norfolk and Auburn Avenues. Look up and check out all 17 stories of luxury building The Gallery, currently under construction, while waiting for the movie to start.
There will be limited chairs available, so FYI: BYOC, if you want to be sure of having a seat.
This year's movie titles are:
Tuesday, July 23:
The Princess Bride
Wednesday, July 24:
Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly.
Thursday, July 25:
Back to the Future
One of the Top 10 movies of all time, in my book.
Friday, July 26:
The Hunger Games
You may have heard of this cult classic.
Saturday, July 27:
Life of Pi
Some guy on a raft. Wait a minute, I just saw this at Bethesda Row Cinema, and it was called Kon-Tiki.
Bethesda UP has a directory of nearby restaurants for pre (outdoor)-theater dining. Please note that two of the restaurants listed have changed: Uptown Deli is now an Indian wok restaurant called Kadhai, and Wing Hub is now Maggie's but still has the Wing Hub wings on their menu - if that's not confusing!
There are some other notable restaurants not listed, including the brand-new Brickside Food & Drink, Smoke BBQ and Latin favorite, The Parva.
