The popular Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema has temporarily closed its doors for extensive renovations, and the construction of a new cafe/bar area. Alcohol will be served when the theater reopens, and it will be the first theater in Bethesda - and maybe the county - to offer reserved seating.
Bethesda Row's arthouse theater is scheduled to reopen May 3. While there's no good time to close, this is probably the only "off season" BRC has. The rest of the year is either summer, or Oscar season.
