|Home: BigScreen Journal - Bethesda, MD: ArcLight Cinemas Coming to Maryland in 2014|
ArcLight Cinemas signed off on a lease for a new location at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland this week, according to a press release issued by the company.
“We’ve created a unique experience at ArcLight Cinemas and we want to share our love of film with movie lovers across the country,” said Chris Forman, CEO of ArcLight Cinemas. “Bethesda provides us with a great opportunity to build an ArcLight community on the East Coast and redefine the way people enjoy their movies.”
Construction on the new 16-screen theater will begin in early 2013, with the opening scheduled for 2014.
The Bethesda Patch reports that the new theater is part of a redevelopment plan for the Westfield Montgomery Mall:
A movie theater is planned as a part of the Bethesda mall’s upcoming redevelopment, which will also feature upscale restaurants in a renovated and expanded dining terrace.
As the theater tenant, ArcLight will bring a 16-screen, state-of-the-art movie complex to Westfield, with the mall’s current three-screen cinema converted to retail shops, according to a statement.
This news would make it clear that The Movies at Montgomery Mall will cease to exist and the new ArcLight theater will be a completely new construction project.
ArcLight Cinemas currently operates four locations in California (two of the listed entries are adjacent), so this will be its first foray on the East Coast. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that this is the first of several theaters that the chain plans to open in the next three years in the East and Midwest regions of the country.
