A cramped uncomfortable mall multiplex opened by Sack Theatres in February 1984, the Copley Place was widely hated for its postage-stamp screening rooms that often
required viewers to look upward at the movie screen.
It was initially a showcase for foreign and art films, but later became a mostly mainstream house after Loews began closing its other Boston theatres right and left in the 1990s.
After Loews opened its state-of-the-art Boston Common multiplex in July 2001, the Copley Place again became a home for art films. But Loews never put much energy into repositioning it, and most of its films were also showing at much more comfortable theatres in Cambridge, Brookline, Newton, or Waltham.
The Copley Place closed its doors forever after the last shows on Sunday, January 30, 2005. It was replaced by a Barneys New York clothing store. Its closing left central Boston with only two movie theatres: Loews Boston Common and the AMC Fenway 13.
