|Home: BigScreen Journal - Bethesda, MD: The Washington Post Profiles the Owners of The Movies at Montgomery Mall|
Danielle Douglas of the Washington Post has written a profile of Jon and Brent Goldstein, owners of The Movies at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland:
When Jon and Brent Goldstein were kids, their parents often shuttled them to Montgomery Mall to take in the latest movie. Now that the brothers are all grown up, they have turned their love of film into a business, taking over the same theater they went to as boys.
But staying competitive in an industry dominated by mega-chains, such as AMC and Regal Theaters, can be challenging for independent players such as the Goldsteins. Their three-screen theater, simply named the Movies at Montgomery, is about five miles from Regal's 10-screen Cineplex and AMC's seven-screen offering, which are blocks apart on Wisconsin Avenue. What's more, all three sites are first-run theaters, showing the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
The Goldsteins, however, are unfazed. Since opening their theater five months ago, the brothers have made a successful go at drumming up business with a number of community-oriented events, including a showing of the "Karate Kid" remake to 600 students of a local kung fu school.
