North Bethesda, MD: Luxury iPic Movie Theater and Restaurant Coming to Pike & Rose

iPic Pike & Rose in Bethesday, Maryland

The Pike & Rose development in North Bethesda, Maryland will be getting a luxury movie theater and restaurant soon. The iPic Pike & Rose is scheduled to open October 31, 2014, and the restaurant, named City Perch, will open in November, according to a recent article in The Washington Post:

When you walk into an iPic, you won't see a box office. Instead, there's a concierge.

"The entire experience, when you walk in there, is much like walking into an affordable luxury hotel," said iPic Entertainment CEO Hamid Hashemi, "like a W."

So, no sticky floors. And, Hashemi said, fewer disruptions. "It’s an experience where people are respectful of other people. When you go to the movies and you see people texting [during the film], I can assure you, that never happens in these theaters," Hashemi said. "They pay a little bit more. They have a love for the experience, they give other people that same kind of treatment."


[Chef Sherry] Yard's City Perch restaurant, opening Nov. 17, is an adjoining but separate concept to the theater. "It will be very chic," Yard said. "The food is just going to be fun and engaging."

The theater will offer luxurious reserved seating and a menu of comfort food and concessions. The standard seating ($11-$13) offers premium leather seats and an individual table, and if you pay extra for the "premium plus" seats, you get seats that also recline as well as a pillow, blanket, and your own touchscreen from which you can order food and have it delivered to you (you have to get your own food with the standard seats).

This location will be the first in Maryland for iPic Theaters, which has theaters in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. The closest theater currently operating is the Regal Rockville Stadium 13 in Rockville, but it does not offer the luxury amenities and upscale food offerings that the iPic will. However, the ArcLight Bethesda is scheduled to open two miles away at the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda in November, so that will provide some direct competition for the iPic.

There are plenty of choices when it comes to movie theaters in the area, though. We count five within five miles of North Bethesda and 17 within ten miles.

The theater will be opening at the end of the month, so keep an eye on its Showtimes page for updates. We also have links to the theater's official web site and Facebook page on its Related Links page as well. Be sure to add the theater to your Favorite Theaters list to make it easy to find them each time you visit this site!
