Terrible – Two stars because the sound system was great. Everything else aweful. 17 theaters upstairs and two down. Most of the workers were downstairs. Hallway garbages overflowing. Bathroom garbages overflowing with paper towels all over the floor. Hand dryers broken. Paper towels empty. The movie previews start and simultaneously the trivia loop is showing. Took multiple visits to John the manager to get the previews fixed and it was quite obvious he was satisfied with their operation. The movie started and the lights stayed on requiring additional visits to the young manager. The concession stand workers were all standing around talking and it took a couple of minutes for one to come to the register for an order at which time they said they were out of Milk Duds as well as two other candies. The theater said now seating yet we walked in and were booted out rudely so they could clean but the theater was anything but clean when we got in there. At least it was expensive!
Multiplex and megaplex theater chain shows mainstream movies in a plush setting. – In Short
In 1920, Edward Durwood opened a single-screen picture house in Kansas City, Mo. Over the next 40 years, his company went on to pioneer the use of four- and six-screen theaters. In 1969, the company incorporated as American Multi-Cinema Inc. in honor of its signature multiplexes. Now, the company is known for theaters with 14 or more screens, as well as innovations such as armrests with built-in cup holders, stadium seating with LoveSeats, ATM-style ticketing and online ticket purchasing.
Formerly great, now rubbish – I have been watching movies at AMC (formerly Loews) Boston Common since its opening. In the past it was great, but has seen a steep decline over the past two years. The floors of the common areas are always filthy, the seats in the theaters are sticky and gross. I can't watch a movie without being disturbed by unruly teens who talk on their cell phones during the film.
Best in Boston – Great theater, but it is almost always jam packed on weekend evenings. You have to get tickets for the popular showings a couple hours beforehand. At least there are things to do in the area while you wait.
Wow – I needn't go on about the Boston Common theatre. The facility speaks for itself. As simply the best movie theatre I have ever been to, a trip there comes with the highest of guarantees.
Are you sure this is a theatre? – Finaly, Boston has a movie theatre that lives up to the rest of the world. The place is huge and features stadium seating with VERY comfy seats. I'm slowly getting used to the outrageous prices but its the same everywhere so I won't hold it against them. Try smuggling in your own food. I can't wait to go again.
THEY HAVE A BAR – Not a place for Families but for the college crowd it can't be beat. They have a bar inside lus it is close to all the great Boston hot spots.
Five Stars, Ten Bucks – The prices are high, but the theatre is great. Most of the first-runs, stadium seating and everything - great place to take small town tourists. The concession selection was over the top - burgers, fried chicken, etc?
I WAS AT THIS THEATER ON 12/7/02 – WHAT A THEATER!
I WAS AT THE LOEWS THEATER LOCATED AT THE BOSTON COMMOMS TODAY. I SEEN DIE ANOTHER DAY!
THE SOUND EFFECT WAS INCREDIBLE. MY HEART WAS BEATING FROM THE SOUNDS EFFECTS. MY EYES FIXED AND NEVER LEFT THE SCREEN!
MY ONLY COMPLAINT: THE CHAIRS NEED TO BE MORE COMFORTABLE. RECLINING CHAIRS IS WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST.
I WOULD DIFINITELY TRAVEL 50 MILES JUST TO WATCH A MOVIE AT THIS THEATER!
Giant Popcorn Scultures – I love this theater. I just wish it weren't so expensive.
