Bow-Tie Cinemas Reston Town Center 11 & BTX Theater

The Reston Town Center Multiplex Cinemas is a one of the architectural landmarks of this beautiful planned community dubbed the “Downtown” for the twenty first century.

It was taken over from National Amusements by Rave Motion Picture Theatres in December 2009. Taken over by Bow-Tie Cinemas from April 1, 2011. Renovations will include de-twinning screens 1 & 2, to bring the total number of screens back to its original configuration of 11.

so it looks like ‘Flight’ will continue it’s run on the BTX screen and NOT ‘SkyFall’ [face palm]

“Skyfall” will be in BTX this Friday (starts at Midnight on Thursday), followed by “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II” the week after.

question: so if the BTX screen can show a scope film without borders, how did it show ‘Life of Pi’ (which is 1.85) did they crop the top and bottom off? or did the film have side black borders? Is the theater really going to be ready for Dolby Atmos for the first Hobbit film – their own website is not advertising this fact.

I don’t who you talked with thebrat at the theater, but ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ on the BTX screen is neither in Atmos OR High Frame Rate [insert mad face]

Yes I just called this theatre and no it won’t be shown in HFR or Atmos. Me no like. The GM said it was almost ready for Atmos and they haven’t upgraded to HFR at the time I spoke to the General Manager.

“almost ready” isn’t cutting it, the first Hobbit movie is a top tier movie where Bow Tie should have had everything in place to compete with the Regal’s and AMC’s in the DC metro area – on the plus side, at least the film will be presented in 7.1 discrete surround sound.

Bow Tie though must be given some credit, along with Cinema Arts (three of the six screens) and the new Angelika Mosaic in providing 7.1 surround sound in all of it’s auditoriums – Regal and AMC fail in this respect

finally made it over to see a movie on the BTX screen. I liked how the screen pretty much used the entire wall, and the 7.1 audio of ‘The Lone Rider’ was thunderous and aurally intense.

[sigh] no Atmos or ‘high frame rate’ on the BTX screen for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’

I’m forgetting are there ceiling speakers on the BTX auditorium? Maybe Bow Tie could relook at putting an object based processor/system here: DTS-X or even AuroMax
