The first movie theatre built in Boston since 1984, General Cinema’s Fenway 13 complex opened in June 2000, finally bringing stadium seating and digital sound systems to the city.

The two largest screens, 62 and 56 feet wide, are known as the “Screen Monsters” because of the theater’s proximity to Fenway Park. They are the first large screens in Boston since the Charles closed in 1994.

The theatre is part of the Landmark Center, a 1928 Art-Deco style Sears catalog sales and distribution center which has been recycled into retail and office space.

Less than four months after opening this theatre, General Cinema went bankrupt. In 2002, AMC acquired General Cinema, including this theatre.

An anti-trust agreement with the state and federal governments required AMC to sell this theatre after acquiring the Loews Cineplex chain. It became a Regal cinema on September 15, 2006.

Sometime in the fall of 2007, they finally took down the “AMC” sign out front and replaced it with a “REGAL” sign.
For all the doom and gloom in this thread, I can report I have seen many movies at the Fenway, and the experience has been nothing but good. Theaters 12 and 13 are among the biggest screens I have ever seen, and the picture and sound are consistently good. YES, the pre-show commercials are loud and annoying, but just turn to your date and ignore them if you can. The bathrooms are plentiful and they have paper towels!

In the Boston Herald of January 14, 2008 there is a review written by Jed Gottlieb of the live feed from the Metropolitan Opera House in NY of Verdi’s “Macbeth” which was presented in one of the auditoriums at the Regal Fenway at 130PM on Sat. Jan. 12th. Tickets were $22 and the show sold out in advance so that there were hopeful ticket-buyers hanging out in front, just like at live events. Gottlieb liked the performance but didn’t care for the intermission camera-work showing stagehands changing the sets; he thought that it worked against the make-believe. There were subtitles in English. The next performance at the Fenway will be on Feb. 16. The shows are live-via-satellite.

Does anyone here know if there is a Cheap/Matinee day on this theater? Or any promotions? In Worcester Big Y Supermarkets have a thing that you can buy tickets for 7 something and use them when ever you want on Showcase and Cinema de Lux. (http://www.bigy.com/coins/coins_showcase_cinemas.php)

This is not a Showcase theatre, it is Regal.

I know that this is Regal, that is why I am asking if anyone knows any promotions or discounts on this theater.

I don’t know if here are any promotions unique to this Regal Theater but Regal offers (on its website) two types of “VIP Tickets”. The cheaper one is valid after a film’s opening period (usually about two weeks) and the more expensive one is valid anytime. These tickets are also available through AAA and possibly through other sources such as those “Entertainment” books.

Now that the Circle Cinemas have closed, this is one of only two remaining movie theatres within Boston city limits. (The other one is AMC Loews Boston Common.)

A small fire in the Regal Fenway a couple of days ago resulted in the sprinklers activating. Then no one could figure out how to turn them off. There was flooding and water damage to the complex which houses the cinema.

I’ve read that the theatre has been getting a little run down lately. Some people have even spotted rodents.

Oh, no! Really? I think that the reason that rodents end up in movie theatres is because people drop their food on the floor, which attracts them. I did see the 70th Anniversary screening of The Wizard of Oz in the Fenway Cinema a couple of years ago, and it was quite good.
