Welcome to our 26th Season

We’re back!!!

We all survived a difficult season and now we’re excited to start a better one. Our new season will begin next month with our opening film streaming from September 21-26.  

Bethesda Row Cinema has re-opened. They have yet to tell us about any restrictions, though, like capacity limitations so we’ve gone ahead and scheduled our first film to be streamed. The film is from Macedonia and is titled “God Exists, and Her Name is Petrunya“. The distributor has given us a discounted price of $8.00 per view, has included the feature of gifting, and is allowing us to pre-order.  Here’s the link to order: 


It is our intention to go back to in-theater screenings. We will monitor the progress of Bethesda Row Cinema and switch back to in-theater screenings as soon as it is safe and comfortable for all of us. Until then we will stream the best international films available.

Please let us know if you have any comments, or difficulty accessing streamed films. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at our Sunday post-film discussions.

God Exists, and Her Name is Petrunya

Beginning on Tuesday, September 21, Cinema Art Bethesda will stream the Macedonian film, God Exists, and Her Name is Petrunya. The stream will be available until noon Sunday, September 26. There will be an $8.00 charge to watch the film. At noon on that Sunday, there will be a post-film discussion moderated by Adam Spector via Zoom.

The film is 100 minutes long and in Macedonian with English subtitles.

More about the film and how to preorder, view and join the discussion can be found on our page dedicated to it.
