AMC Loews Boston Common 19

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This state-of-the-art Loews megaplex opened in July 2001, as part of the Millennium Place/Ritz-Carlton Towers development in Boston’s theatre district. It occupies the former site of the Astor (Tremont) Theatre, which had been demolished two decades earlier.

It is now the only movie theatre in downtown Boston.

If you are wondering about fake IMAX for Alice in Wonderland, Boston Common went Real 3D for the movie. Shutter Island was being shown this weekend in their over 600 seat auditorium. Fake IMAX is still planned for the spring.

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

From the Wicked Local blog: Boston gets a new IMAX theater, but it may not be as big as you think

They’re now aiming at May 7 for the opening of Iron Man 2, though it may be ready a week or two earlier.

No way I could see Iron Man 2 at Boston Common after reading the wicked local blog.
If I see the film in IMAX, Jordan’s in Reading for me.

This was another of the theaters designed for Loew’s by architect David Rockwell.

This place is going down hill ever since AMC took it over.
Not sure why they won’t invest in new seats or fix men’s room.
Will look at Showcase Cinemas first before AMC for a movie.
Showcase is all digital @ Randolph & Patriot Place.

Just a short note to say that AMC has finally fixed (or replaced) the scrolling video sign below the marque. It had been broken for several years. It still doesn’t give you much information about what’s playing inside, however.

Rocky Horror Picture Show with Full Body Cast will be moving here from the (closing) Harvard Square theatre, effective August 4.
