Does Silverspot have any US locations other than the one in Naples FL that is on this site?

is this supposed to go across the street from White Flint or the plaza where the the Kid R'Us is, further north up on Rockville Pike? There’s mention that two new cineplexes are planned for North Bethesda/Rockville.

The article says it is to be a part of the Rock Springs Centre development; here is an article about that project that might shed some light on the question of its exact location.

ah, gotcha! the area near Walter Johnson High School and the Hamburger Hamlet. Supposedly there is another sight that is getting a makeover according to Bethesda magazine:

“Though completion of the White Flint corridor may take up to three decades to unfold, the future is now for a few leading developers as they proceed with projects that will significantly change the area in the next few years.

The JBG Companies, developer of the nearly 400-unit North Bethesda Market apartment tower on the west side of Rockville Pike, expects to break ground this summer for North Bethesda Market II directly to the north of the first building.

The nearly 350-unit NoBe II, as it’s called, will become the county’s tallest structure when completed in 2015: At 300 feet and 24 stories, it will slightly surpass the 24-story, 289-foot NoBe I, which includes a Whole Foods Market on the ground floor. Dan Malouff, an Arlington County, Va., transportation planner and local blogger, predicts the architectural design of NoBe II will make it “an undeniable landmark.” Also planned for the site is a 14-story office building to which JBG hopes to attract a movie theater.

Farther up Rockville Pike, Federal Realty plans a 45,000-square-foot movie theater as part of an office building at what is now Mid-Pike Plaza."
