Hate this theatre! 12/16/2007

Well, we hated it, and suggest that visitors not bother. All of this theatre is in bad taste, garishly decorated with absolutely no style, too many crowds, and nowhere else to go except a McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts up the street. We will never go back. It was suggested that we travel on the subway, but that would have cost us a total of $8.00 round trip -- and we were only traveling 4 miles -- when last year it would have cost $5.00. Couldn't figure out the subway because no one sits in the booths to give visitors information. We finally gave up and chose to drive. Then I had to park 5 blocks away from the theatre and paid $10 for parking on a cold night on the 4th level of a dingy parking lot, walked in the dark on questionable streets with my 12 yr old daughter, paid outrageous ticket prices (and folks, no one from my state has ever paid $10.50 for a movie ticket) We bought popcorn we had to butter ourselves. Restrooms were dirty. Then this guy rolls a cart in front of the screen and starts to talk about popcorn for sale and stories he would have told. I wanted to ask if he tapdanced as well. Finally, he went away. Whatever happened to the Copley Theatres? Easy to reach, walk in the warm through hotel and elevated glass walkways, plenty to do before and after the movie. Even the Boston Common was a disappointment -- they used to have lovely lights on the trees, a different color for every tree. Boston Common Christmas lights were all white and limpy looking. So, all I can say is save your money, find another place to go. more
