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.

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.

There will be competition in the future for this cinema because this week ground was broken for the big “The Hub” building on Causeway street on the site of the old North Station and the old Boston Garden. The first phase of The Hub will include a 60,000 sq.ft. Star Market and a 60,000 sq. ft. 15-screen ArcLight Boston cinema. There will also be a music hall for live acts run by Don Law & Ed Kane. This news is from a long article in the business section of today’s Boston Herald.

A disgrace that this is the only theatre in downtown Boston…Loews had a bit of class in booking studio and art films

Love this little Loews. Saw A Most Violent Year (with Jessica Chastain – I’m an extra in her latest movie!) there a few snowy Januarys ago.
