This is one of the worst managed cinemas I have ever been to. Staff is non concerned and non friendly. They just want you to purchase your ticket from kiosk and not bother them at all. The bathrooms are some of the filthiest bathrooms I have EVER experienced at any cinema in my life and I have been to many all over the US and in Boston. I went in three one night because they were so dirty and they were all as disgusting as each other. I have been in numerous times and told the managers on duty, NEVER gets better, only gets worse. Flooded floors, unflushed toilets, toilet paper everywhere and then you will have ten staff members walking around together and not addressing squat. This place is disgusting. You get loud young ghetto hood rat type clientele in this place, for the most part, that know squat about manners, so trying to listen to a movie with people talking throughout it, loudly, is obnoxious. WHY GO TO THE MOVIES if you are not going to watch it? Dont disrespect people trying to get their 13.00 worth. If you want to jabber and look at your phone, go to a restaurant or for half of the typical clientele, try finishing school.
My husband and I went to see Finding Dory last night. We decided to go to a late night showing in order to avoid being distracted by the movies predominantly young audience. We had quite the opposite experience and it was honestly the worst movie going experience I have ever had. First, we arrived to a messy theater. There were a large amount of seats wrapped in caution tape which made finding a seat difficult. A lot of young college-aged people filtered into the theater and were quite loud + boisterous. The adds were blaring very loudly. I was already very annoyed. The movie began and most of the people quieted down, but we began to smell that someone was smoking weed in the theater. It was bad enough that we almost left, but didnt want to waste the $30 we spent to get there. No attendants came around and we were subjected to the weed smell throughout the entire film. No doubt I have no desire to go back to this theater, and will definitely reconsider AMC as a whole.

If only for the sake of convenience of meeting up in Boston would I go here with friends... The iconic large Loews logo can be seen from far away and there are several floors of theaters down long corridors some of them have nice views of the Common. Often in the long hallways they also have these fun movie props or displays if you want to take some photos. Aside from its convenient location right across from Boston Common/Boylston T and large theaters there arent too many other positives I can present for you. Unfortunately this location has not been renovated to the comfy reclining chairs like the other AMCs. This is probably just for the convenience of fitting as many bodies as they can in here. As can be expected the concessions are wildly expensive here. The theaters arent always the cleanest but at least the bathrooms are still usable unlike AMC Framingham. Despite its overall mediocrity, I cant say that I havent enjoyed watching movies with friends here.
Si por casualidad quieren llegar al cine temprano y disfrutar de refrigerios y deal ambiente cinemático, este cine no es el lugar para usted. El area de bébidas y otros refigerios se encuentra en el segundo piso cerca de los cines y no permiten la entrada hasta UNOs minutos antes. Entonces me pregunto, ¿para que tienen sillas y area común si uno no la puede accesar? ¿Es que solo servimos para consumir y ya? El servicio es pèsimo.

This is my favorite movie theater in Boston. This is a Huge grand theater right in Downtown. The theater is very nice, clean and in great condition. The non-IMAX screens here are fairly large and have big halls. The IMAX screen is a big joke. This screen used to regular-scale screen. They just installed some additional speaker and new projector and labeled it as IMAX. Its no different from their biggest screen in general auditorium. If you want experience true IMAX go to two of Jordans IMAX location or New England Aquarium. The IMAX screen size is only 56 feet by 29 feet while the Jordan’s IMAX Screen is 76 feet by 55 feet and Aquarium has even bigger screen. The location is super convenient and next to T. Not worth spending extra $9 for watching a 3D movie at LIEMAX. I would have given it 4 star but not for small IMAX screen.
While the theater itself is quite nice, the last two times I have visited I have had horrid experiences with the digital display closed caption devices. The first time, a film that was listed as having captioning available did not. The staff said that it was listed as having captions because they have audio description available, and did not understand the problem until I explained that captioning is not the same thing as audio description. I opted to see a different film, which I was assured would have captioning, and the digital display caption viewer never loaded the file and thus didnt display captions. When I went again more recently, the caption device was available without issue, but again didnt work. No explanation was given by the staff when I returned the viewer.
Previously a favorite theater, but no more. If you plan to pay cash, go elsewhere...over-automation and under-staffing make this unpleasant. Expect long lines at the concessions, for similar reasons. If you pay to see two movies, expect an overly eager security guard to make you feel like some kind of criminal. Additionally, if you want to quickly check movie times, do NOT use their new site, which now resembles a badly written video game...all style and zero substance. Expect too high ticket prices, but honestly thats everywhere nowadays. Finally, when you do make it to your seat, expect a mediocre viewing experience. Pros...the location is still convenient...the guy who usually takes my ticket is friendly and does a great job.
bought expensive tickets for a double feature of GAURDIANS OF THE GALAXY 1 and 2 , the 3D was messed up and we saw double for the first 15 minutes, and during the second film the lights came up in the middle of the movie , both times an audience member had to run out and tell a theater employee in order to get it fixed, waited in a long line next to another long line where a bored cashier took orders from BOTH lines while 2 other employees talked a the far end of the concessions stand, ignoring all the patrons. a trivia contest for comic book fans during intermission, all the fans were xtra large and all the t shirts given away were only size small, maybe the bored employees took all the larger t shirts? crappy experience over all,
Pretty nice theater. Went to see war of the planets of the apes a few days ago and unlike other theaters iv been to the structure/design of this one isnt a mess. However the food was pretty expensive (as usual) and the night I went there someone asked if we wanted to buy some weed, and someone else got shot in the subway right across the street... (Or at least I believe that is what all the cops were about) Not really their fault but its just showing its likely not the best neighborhood. Another problem is parking. Place is filled with one way roads which make it a pain to get anywhere plus the traffic so If you want to watch a movie get here pretty early I guess.
