Worth noting about the Revere Showcase, added reclining powered seats in all houses. No instructions anywhere for them so your first time you have to guess how to work them. Also has a 4D motion control seats in 1 house that makes a movie into a ride. Worth trying once.Added an XPLUS house which is an Imax type of system.Has reserve seating so when you buy tickets you choose your seat, trouble is seems like the theaters are always mostly full giving you little choices but often when movie starts there is no crowd. Only place around me showing TMC revivals and also the Rifftrax live shows.

National Amusements will close this theatre and sell it to a developer who plans to replace it with an Amazon distribution warehouse.

That complex I used as my third location for Showcase Cinemas. First choice Randolph. 2nd choice Patriot Place then Revere. Dedham location was closer in distance than Patriot Place, but they never had a late show on weekends.
