Newton >AMC Chestnut Hill 5
After an exhausting afternoon of shopping, give your sorry feet a rest and take in a movie..
The bigger-is-better credo rings true at the Hill. Here you'll find 5 massive screens, plenty of seats and enough buttered popcorn to send your cholesterol higher than the price tags at nearby Bloomingdale's.
Located on the rather hellish Rt. 9 (can you say, "No U-Turn?"), the cinema stands mere minutes away from some of the most chi-chi shopping in the area, including Bloomies and the Atrium Mall. The cinema just may be the only place of business around that won't land you in the poorhouse.
Two features which add some character to this suburban movie theater include midnight showings on Friday and Saturday nights and a weekly movie camp for the youngins.
How much did they pay for that review?. I was shocked to see the tiny shoebox of a "theater" they crammed us into. My friend Ken's living room is bigger (no exaggeration). The room was tiny, the seats were tiny, the screen was tiny. It it only suitable for $1.50 2nd run service, yet they show blockbusters there. Freaky. It looks like all the "editorial reviews" are paid-for adverts, just like the car "reviews" in the auto section of the newspaper. Pathetic. Citysearch is useless.
At least one ok screen. I went to see "Star Wars II" here and wanted to make sure not to see it on a small screen. A nice surprise was that they would actually tell me over the phone which show was on the biggest screen. Well, the screen was bigger than the shoebox screens of other multiplexes, but it wasn't actually big in absolute terms. It was an ok mid-sized screen, and the theater had stadium seating. I'd rather not want to find out how small their smaller screens are, though.
