Bethesda Row consistently has the best selection of movies in the area. After some initial challenges, their new reserved seating system seems to be working well. I appreciate being able to select my seats ahead of time. And the new seats are extremely comfortable. I now go to the movies here more often because it's so enjoyable.
Reservations might be fine for evening shows that are filled, but I go to the first show of the day and I detest the system of reserving seats. It creates a line outside, and once inside, you find the seats and you don't want to sit there--I have knee replacements and need to extend my legs. I cannot tell until I get into the theater where I want to sit. So I often am able to change. My last trip, I told the clerk, I never sit where I pick. He said, then I won't sell you a ticket. How dare he talk to a patron like that! Furthermore, the seats don't go up and you have to get up and walk to the aisle to let anyone in. Horrible seats. Very uncomfortable and NO LEG ROOM. I am very disappointed in the renovation!
