It may be a some time before Reston Town Center patrons get a first look at the replacement for BowTie Cinemas.

Initially expected to come in late 2022, LOOK Dine-in Cinemas now anticipates an opening sometime in the first half of this year.

A company representative told FFXnow that the movie theater will likely open sometime in the second quarter of the year, which runs from April to June.

Once an officially date is known, the company plans to announce details on its website.

This is the first location in the D.C. area for the company, which plans to renovate the Reston theater. Other features of the “luxury” brand include a food, beverage and cocktail menu, according to the company’s website.

Bow Tie Cinemas, which acquired the theater from Rave Cinema in 2011, closed in April.
