A membership for me would not be practical due to the fact I would have to travel 2 hours each way to get to the cinema. I was able to go there for the American Hustle preview screening last month. I was sort of disappointed that not only the director appearance was in the screen as opposed to in person, the performance was recorded the preceding evening a far cry from my dream of the event the prior evening which featured an in person appearance by Jennifer Lawrence. The evening was still enjoyable and worth the trip. I was quite impressed in how the curtain opened just at the start.

I was also disappointed that the Sundance screening would be of a documentary as opposed to a Comedy or drama film. Had it not been the Bulger film I would have gotten tickets.

Nei8ther article officially said the AMC was going to close. I foresee it becoming an art house.

The theater stayed open till mid 1998,a few months after the Lowell Showcase opened. Even with a $3.50 bargain night,it could not compete despite showing many of the same films.

chitchatjf commented about Salem Tri Cinema on Feb 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

This theater had three auditoriums. Cinema 1 had 140 seats and was all in blue. Cinema 2 the large one had a total of 300 seats and was all in red (not too unlike the AMC/Lowes theaters in Methuen,and the third screen had a mere 100 seats and was all in yellow.

It originally opened with a $2.25 night admission with 75 cents for children and matinees.

The Merrimac Valley Christan film festival started here in 93.

chitchatjf commented about AMC Loews Boston Common 19 on Mar 30, 2010 at 10:13 am

From experience I can honestly say when you sit up front the IMAX effect is sort of intact on the IMAX digital screens.

However they have raised the prices even MORE! $17.50 at night for 3D compared to $11.50 at Jordan’s and $12.95 at the Aquarium

chitchatjf commented about Price increases for 3-D movies in effect today on Mar 28, 2010 at 10:04 am

$13 for an AM matinee? I’ll more likely switch to the $6 2D screen.

chitchatjf commented about Harvard Square Theatre on Dec 10, 2009 at 9:44 pm

I can now say I have seen at least one film in each of the 5 auditoriums in this complex.
cinemas 4 and 5 are generally closets mainly to be avoided.
cinema 3 now has DLP capacity.
