Calling all avid moviegoers, this is THE only place to watch the latest hit movies (well, unless you want to go to the Drive-In) in luxury & style. I am specifically speaking to the Lux Level movie experience which costs a bit over $20 per ticket (which includes a $5 food & drink voucher per ticket to use in the theater) but in my eyes, well worth the price of admission. Once you purchase your tickets either online (you are able to reserve the exact seats that you want in the theater) or can purchase them there where youll choose the seats at this time (I highly recommend purchasing online to 1.) avoid the crowds and 2.) to ensure you get the best seats available) you are greeted by a person verifying IDs and tickets purchased as this is a 21+ area. You walk up some nicely carpeted stairs and are then greeted at the top by two ushers if you will, taking your tickets, letting you know which # theater you will enter and if youve ever been there before, if not, theyll tell you about the Lux Level experience, a very nice touch. You are able to grab a few seats at the bar or if you prefer, a leather seated booth, where you can order any drink you can think of or anything off their delicious lunch, dinner, and dessert menu, did i mention, there are about 30 TVs in the area all showing the latest Sox, Celtics, Bruins, or Patriots games. Once in the theater, you are helped to your cushy leather reclining chairs that have a button on them, if you press it, youll have a waiter/waitress at your service to order whatever you please (all with illuminated menus to order from), the food/drinks are prepared, and you are served quickly, quietly, and discretely, so as not to disturb everyone else during the movie. You are also given free popcorn with your ticket and dont forget to use the $5 voucher. The best part is that the screen is at an optimal level for your viewing experience and you have plenty of space to move around and stretch out, providing the most comfortable, enjoyable movie-going experience around.
I normally love this theater, but my experience today makes me never wanna go back. My father and I went to see Star Trek: Beyond. When purchasing tickets we BOTH stated that we were going to see the 12:15pm showing of Star Trek. We were handed tickets and told Auditorium 6. We bought popcorn and soda and went to take our seats. After sitting through all the previews and the first five minutes of the movie it was clear we were in the wrong theater. We exited and checked our tickets to discover they had sold us tickets to see Lights Out at 12:25 instead of what we had asked for. We were granted a refund our tickets and, after a few minutes of arguing with the manager, a refund for the food too. The staff was incredibly rude through the entire ordeal and apparently in need of hearing aids. They caused us to miss the movie we wanted to see and, because of the time schedule we had, forced us to go to another theater with a show time that wouldnt have us waiting in the theater for another two hours. Absolutely ridiculous considering we BOTH stated which movie we were buying tickets for. Im still baffled as to how we ended up in the wrong theater.
The Lux is a five star idea being executed at a three star level. Im HUGE fan of The Lux level and often remark to friends that its the only way to see a movie youve been looking forward to. Unfortunately however my last three visits have been a let down. Its not unusual to have a manager/supervisor (or two) great your couple and get you to your seats....this even after youve been greeted and given your theater number. This may seem like a silly observation, but perhaps fewer people getting me to my seat and more attention being paid to the food and drink quality may be what this theater really needs. Our latest visit was this past New Years 9:30 showing of Sisters. This time our entrees arrived fast, before or cocktails but barely warm. And then, when our drinks arrived they were at least five minutes apart, the result was two lukewarm martinis and what could be less fun than that?!? Anyway, thats pretty much how its been on our last few visits which is different from how it used to be. Please start getting it right again. Thank you!
Watched Warcraft from Legendary/Universal entertainment. Never played the modern Warcraft PC games, but in 1994 when my pops bought a custom four thousand dollar IBM compatible that had the throwback MS-DOS, I had the original cartoony World of Warcraft. It was fun controlling the peons. At Foxborough, I watched the movie in 3D; it was fantastic and the orcs and other animals are surreallistic. Go watch it, you wont be disappointed, I guarantee. Forget those expert reviews that badmouth the movie, there are always going to be haters who are the followers later because they are scared of change. The makers of this film are the future trendsetting pioneers of the new world 1.
$10.50 for a afternoon movie is a joke. The seats are the worst I have seen, since the 1970s (Theater 4). Seriously, these seats are like cramped airline seats with dirty red cloth that only recline 3""! My back and neck started hurting before the movie even started. Obviously, the owners are more concerned in profit over comfort with the expensive variety of snacks and ticket cost. California theaters (Southern Ca) have been for years installing leather electric reclining theater seating with trays and cup holders built in. The chairs recline all the way back in a sleep like position. Im spoiled for an $8 movie ticket but why should I accept less? Last movie I see here!

Pros: The seating is awesome,I felt like I was seated in first class on an airplane.The sound is clear and not too loud,picture was clear not like other theaters where its dark and hard to see what is actually showing. For my meal I had the swiss cheese and mushroom burger with fries,it was good and about the same price that you would pay in most restaurants. Cons: It is more costly than your average movie theater but you are paying for what you get which is a top notch movie viewing experience. Overall: I cant wait to go again. I go to the movies about once every 2-3 weeks. Last week was the first time I have been to the Showcase De Lux.
This was a very first for my husband and I. This was the most comfortable movie experience ever. The comforts and conveniences outweigh the ticket prices. You can enjoy your movie of choice at the perfect seating level and enjoy cocktails, appetizers, lunch, dinner, and desert--all at the touch of your arm rest call button and with the aid of your back-lit menu. The service staff was courteous and attentive to every detail. The luxury bar, restaurants, and bathrooms were incredible! Its something that everyone should do at least once!
First time experiencing LUX! Totally cool. If I could do anything differently: (1) Arrive 20 minutes early if youd like to have your meal ready for the movie and not be distracted during the beginning by the servers (if you planning on eating, which is motivated by a $5/ticket food voucher), and (2) sit in the front of the LUX seating, especially when doing 3D. The Pull Pork BBQ Flatbread Pizza was pretty good. Its a pricey outing, but probably worth it once a year or so, at least for me.
