Terrible 11/25/2010

Two stars because the sound system was great. Everything else aweful. 17 theaters upstairs and two down. Most of the workers were downstairs. Hallway garbages overflowing. Bathroom garbages overflowing with paper towels all over the floor. Hand dryers broken. Paper towels empty. The movie previews start and simultaneously the trivia loop is showing. Took multiple visits to John the manager to get the previews fixed and it was quite obvious he was satisfied with their operation. The movie started and the lights stayed on requiring additional visits to the young manager. The concession stand workers were all standing around talking and it took a couple of minutes for one to come to the register for an order at which time they said they were out of Milk Duds as well as two other candies. The theater said now seating yet we walked in and were booted out rudely so they could clean but the theater was anything but clean when we got in there. At least it was expensive! more

Formerly great, now rubbish 5/30/2007

I have been watching movies at AMC (formerly Loews) Boston Common since its opening. In the past it was great, but has seen a steep decline over the past two years. The floors of the common areas are always filthy, the seats in the theaters are sticky and gross. I can't watch a movie without being disturbed by unruly teens who talk on their cell phones during the film. Pros: Great movie selection, ample concessions Cons: Dirty more

Best in Boston 12/16/2003

Great theater, but it is almost always jam packed on weekend evenings. You have to get tickets for the popular showings a couple hours beforehand. At least there are things to do in the area while you wait. Pros: Great visual/audio, Lots of movie choices Cons: $10 parking, VERY crowded weekends more

Wow 2/9/2003

I needn't go on about the Boston Common theatre. The facility speaks for itself. As simply the best movie theatre I have ever been to, a trip there comes with the highest of guarantees. Pros: Variety of Films, Right off T, Great Atmosphere Cons: Expensive more

Are you sure this is a theatre? 1/28/2003

Finaly, Boston has a movie theatre that lives up to the rest of the world. The place is huge and features stadium seating with VERY comfy seats. I'm slowly getting used to the outrageous prices but its the same everywhere so I won't hold it against them. Try smuggling in your own food. I can't wait to go again. Pros: Comfy seats, Good sound Cons: Expensive more

THEY HAVE A BAR 1/24/2003

Not a place for Families but for the college crowd it can't be beat. They have a bar inside lus it is close to all the great Boston hot spots. more

Five Stars, Ten Bucks 12/13/2002

The prices are high, but the theatre is great. Most of the first-runs, stadium seating and everything - great place to take small town tourists. The concession selection was over the top - burgers, fried chicken, etc? Pros: Clean, Impressive, Good Location Cons: Expensive, Busy on Weekends more

I WAS AT THIS THEATER ON 12/7/02 12/7/2002

WHAT A THEATER! I WAS AT THE LOEWS THEATER LOCATED AT THE BOSTON COMMOMS TODAY. I SEEN DIE ANOTHER DAY! THE SOUND EFFECT WAS INCREDIBLE. MY HEART WAS BEATING FROM THE SOUNDS EFFECTS. MY EYES FIXED AND NEVER LEFT THE SCREEN! MY ONLY COMPLAINT: THE CHAIRS NEED TO BE MORE COMFORTABLE. RECLINING CHAIRS IS WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST. I WOULD DIFINITELY TRAVEL 50 MILES JUST TO WATCH A MOVIE AT THIS THEATER! more

Giant Popcorn Scultures 11/15/2002

I love this theater. I just wish it weren't so expensive. Pros: Location, Lots of screens Cons: Expensive, Very expensive more

City Theathers 9/27/2002

Having been brought up in the country, it's nice to see how much a city theather can be. This place is very nice and provides a nice park in fron of it for a romantic walk afterwards. Pros: very nice Cons: parking! more

Fun Filled Theatre 8/23/2002

I love the Boston Common Theatre. Being directly acrooss from ""The Commons"" gives this theatre a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. Especially at night time. It's location is exceptionally convenient being close to the MBTA. This is definately one of my two favorites. Pros: Size, Seating, Location Cons: Parking more

Red Light District 8/16/2002

The theater is very nice except the glow that the red lights that line the isles give to the screen. All the blacks in the movie are a washed out red which is very distracting to me. If they could lower the brightness of these safety lights, this theater would be much more attractive. Pros: Comfortable seats, Stadium seating, Downtown Cons: Washed out screen, Expensive more

Rude movie-goers 8/6/2002

After paying top dollar ($10) for a movie ticket, you'd like to be able to lose yourself in the plot. Both times I've been to this theater, I've been distracted by appalling audience behavior -- the most recent was the presence of a two-year old in a PG13-rated film. The real kicker was when the mother of the child swore (the f word) at a full theater of viewers when they asked her to quiet her child. Where are the movie attendants when this type of activity occurs? Who makes people accountable for bad theater-viewing behavior? That was the last time I'll go to this theater. Pros: Stadium seating, New facility, Lots of showings Cons: Rude movie-goers, No audience monitorin more
