BREAKING: Bow Tie Cinemas to leave Reston Town Center

The movie theater is expected to close this year.

The lights are about to go dark at Reston Town Center’s longtime movie theater.

Bow Tie Cinemas did not renew its lease for this year, according to a representative for Boston Properties.

The movie theater did not return multiple requests for comment, although a source who chose to remain anonymous says the theater is expected to close some time in May.

But moviegoers have no reason to fear: Boston Properties says that another theater is coming to the town center.

“We completed a lease with a new theater operator late last year,” said Sapna Yathraj, a spokesperson for BP.

The company did not immediately release any other information and declined to comment on the name of the new theater.

Moviegoers have reported that the longtime tenant has struggled with delayed showings and maintenance issues for the past year or so.

Bow Tie Cinemas acquired the theater at Reston Town Center from Rave Cinema in 2011. The theater shuttered during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic before reopening on Memorial Day weekend in May 2021.
