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.

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

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.

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.)

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.

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

This is not a Showcase theatre, it is Regal.

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)

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.

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!

Not all General Cinema’s were built so they didn’t get run down. I bet the reason the ones in the Boston area were nice is because that’s where the home office was. Another reason is most of GC ’s old theatres are closed and mostly only the new ones are still open.

I know of some that were dumps. One of the biggest dumps was the Har Mar 11 in Roseville,Mn. Har Mar had a 3 and 8 plex and the 8 was built by GC and the 3 by Mann. It was poorly maintained for years along with the Northtown 4 in Blaine,Mn.The Shelard Park 5 in St.Louis Park,Mn. wasn’t much of a theatre either. The Greenwood Park1-4 in Greenwood,In ( Indianapolis ) was in need of repairs. It was later closed along with Greenwood 5-7 for the new Greenwood 14 about a year before AMC took over GC.

General Cinema had some nice theatres as well. When the started building a bunch of megaplexes some of those were nice. The Southtown in Bloomington,Mn. was a nice one they got from Mann.

Just wanted to let everyone know that our review of the Regal Fenway 13 is now up on our website. It’s the first in a series of reviews focusing on Boston-area theaters we’ve never been to before. We found it to be a pleasant and enjoyable experience, although the fact that the giant AMC sign is still up nearly a year after Regal took over was interesting…

Just wanted to let everyone know that our review of the Regal Fenway 13 is up on our website, part of our Summer Tour to Boston-area theaters we’ve never visited before. We found it to be a rather pleasant and accomodating place. Although I was a bit surprised to see that the giant AMC signage is STILL in place nearly a year after Regal took over…

Nope, still getting all the 1st runs (for the most part). Actually got quite a few for ‘300’ this past weekend.. outgrossed the Commons apparently. :-P

Any news on how this is doing since Regal took over? Are they getting any of the good pictures or is AMC hogging them all over at the Boston Commons?

Regal recently added a couple plasma screens into the lobby, I noticed some other screen type thing being built in the lobby today. The concession stand is another thing Regal wants to redo. Apparently the building is “extremely run down” according to Regal standards. Will keep you guys posted on other changes.

I love that at this point in Boston the AMC Theatre has “LOEWS” signage on it, and the Regal Cinema has an “AMC THEATRES” sign on it!

Regal is putting money in to the theater? Are they re-paint/wall paper everything to coordinate with the Regal colors like they did at Union Square and at Brass Mill Center in Waterbury, CT? I can’t imagine this theater is run down, General Cinema built theaters in such a way that I don’t think they ever looked run down, I imagine its simular to Clifton Commons in New Jersey, which is still in great shape and AMC (which hasn’t really put any money in to remodeling theaters) only installed new carpeting in theaters.

Regal’s own ads (which appeared in last weekend’s Boston Herald) called it the “Fenway Stadium 13”. In a similar vein, Regal took over the E-Walk in Times Square, NYC also last week and it is now referred in ads as the “Regal E-walk Stadium 13”. It was previously known as the E-Walk 13 or just the E-Walk when Loews (and later AMC) had it.

I guess Regal likes to put the “stadium” in there to differentiate from it’s conventional seating theatres.

I concur with dwodweyla though, if only for the sake of clarity.

Like Joen05 said, the official name is “Regal Fenway Stadium 13”.

I think changing it to simply “Fenway 13” covers all the bases on this one. They can list “Regal” under the chain info.

CinemaTreasures generally prefers to call theatres by their current name. I’m just trying to figure out what it is. The Globe ad doesn’t include the word Stadium in the name.

I would personally rather not rename it. It is officially called the Regal Fenway Stadium 13. There is no interactive voice recording, yet. Regal is actually putting money into the theatre, but crew morale is pretty low right now. It doesn’t seem “fun” anymore, but we’ll see what happens when the bigwigs leave.

Ron Newman
Ron Newman on September 15, 2006 at 7:18 am

but in the Globe, it’s the “Regal Fenway 13”. The Globe ad still includes the website www.moviewatcher.com which is obviously wrong.

When I try to phone the theatre, it just rings, no answer.

Let’s wait another day or two before renaming it here at CinemaTreasures.
