A real nice shopping complex set right across the street from Mt. Holyoke College, which was built in late 1980s when the original buildings (including one housing the much belowed Odyssey Bookshop) were burned by arsonists. Eleven old-style house-type buildings are interconnected and filled aith interesting stores and services, with beautiful courtyards and walkways (One features the rebuilt Odyssey).

The Tower Theatres are on the third floor of one of the buildings – a beautiful spiral staircase takes people up to the lobby which has amusing carpeting featuring images of film reels and popcorn buckets. The two auditoriums seat 140 each, and there is nice simple colored paneling along the sidewalls, and unique cathedral ceilings with a little bit of ornate wood trim and gold leaf. Screens are a little small but projection is very good and sound excellent, and the popcorn has real butter!
