Day 5: For Best Theater, The Award Goes To…

Bethesda Row Cinema

When it comes to watching a great flick Landmark Theatres Bethesda Row Cinema is the place to go “hands-down.”  Landmark Theatres has 56 theaters nationwide and specializes in bringing diverse and entertaining films to a sophisticated viewing audience (oooh I feel sophisticated already…). Bethesda Row Cinema showcases a wide variety of films — ranging from Independent and Foreign film to 3-D movies and intelligent films from Hollywood. According to Landmark Theatres, it is the nation’s largest theatre chain dedicated to exhibiting and marketing independent film. In honor of Earth Day 2010, Landmark Theatres launched new EcoSelect popcorn bags in all of its theatres across the country (this made the Greenie in Amy very happy!).  The theater is underground so it’s super quiet and a dead-zone for cells phones (whoo hoo).  The concession stand is top-notch and features items you won’t see at the big chain theaters (lots of chocolate!).  We especially like the Peet’s Coffee & Teas flavored with all the options available from Torani Syrups that are inspired by Italian recipes.

Amy and I recently really enjoyed The King’s Speech now playing at Bethesda Row Cinema.  We had to wait a bit as the show time we wanted was sold out!  Nominated for 7 Golden Globe awards, including Best Picture of the Year, Best Director, Best Actor Male (Colin Firth), Best Supporting Actor Male (Geoffrey Rush) , Best Supporting Actress (Helena Bonham Carter), Best Screenplay, & Best Speech (just kidding) —the movie is superb. We agree with the critics, The King’s Speech is “The Best Film of 2010” (The New York Observer) and the best place to watch it is Bethesda Row Cinema located at the corner of Woodmont Avenue and Bethesda Avenue in downtown Bethesda.   ~Brian
