It is now the only movie theatre in downtown Boston.

Thanks Ron for the description. As to theatrefan’s point, though at least sometimes simply in the main lobby, some regular mainstream multiplexes like AMC also have bars now, not only the movie theater chains that began with bars.
And I believe this theatre now has a bar in one of the lobby levels called MacGuffins, but it’s much smaller and less fancy than the original Back Lot lounge.
Regal also has one that is called Cinebarre but it’s only in 7 of their locations so far.
In the print edition of today’s Boston Herald there is a review of the new movie “Chappaquidick” which is playing here at the Boston Common, as well as the Kendall Square cinema in Cambridge. But it’s also playing at two other local cinemas: the “Kerasotes Showplace Icon Boston” and the “South Bay Center”. I never heard of the former and only recently heard of the latter. Where are they located? What are they like? Anyone know? (the movie gets a Grade A review).
Internet says the Showplace Icon is on Seaport Boulevard. It opened earlier this year. Here is an article with lots of photos. It looks pretty nice.
MacGuffins is AMC’s Bar brand that that is installed in Dine-in and AMC locations.
This opened on July 20th, 2001. Grand opening ad in the photo section
Does anyone know the capacity of each auditorium. I know the IMAX is 654 and Screen 1 is 215. My movie was in IMAX and the IMAX screen looks like RPX or Dolby Cinema.
This theatre reminds me of the AMC Loews 34th Street and AMC Loews Kiips Bay before renovations. Still got the Loews brand inside.
I’ll post a picture of the IMAX screen when I get home next week.
The Loews Boston Common opened around the same time as the Loews in Elizabeth.
Theatre now has Dolby Cinema
