I wouldn't do this often, but it is fun to have a more "luxurious" movie going experience once in a while. If you are going to go though, get the more expensive seats. If you are spending this much for a movie you might as well go all out and get the reclining seats.

The chair are the most comfie you can imagine, and they recline. Every seat in the theater has an excellent view of the screen. You can order dinner and the food is fabulous. Sophisticated. Healthy. I know...in a theater? But they are attached to a restaurant. Even the cocktails are really impressive. And if you want to have a post-theater... More

This is great when you feel like splurging! The seats are overwhelmingly comfortable and if you select the SuperLux seats in the back ($28), they recline all the way! I like that you get to select your seats ahead of time (like an airline) - and there's an app for that! In the back three rows, you have access to... More

Yes, the tickets are $20 per person, but you do get a $5 credit PER ticket towards food and drinks. They have a great lounge to wait in prior to the movie that features a cocktail bar and the drinks are delicious. There are two types of seating...Super Lux and Super Lux Lite--the major difference is the fact that the... More

Showcase Super Lux is the successor local movie theatre to the now gone Chestnut Hill theatre, and, in a way, to the Circle Movie Theatre -- both of which I loved. So in order to go to the movies at the Lux you have to pay $20 (don't get tricked into reserving even more expensive seats). But the seats are... More

The food is pretty average, but the comfortable seating and ability to order dinner and drinks makes it a fun night out.

Overall pretty decent The not so great part: the service. they only open the doors 25 minutes before... More

Saw a great movie (The Chef), enjoyed the scallops, but hated the service. The waitstaff is clueless and run around not knowing where to deliver food. I also waited more than 20 minutes for beer in a bottle and popcorn while people next to me got a mixed drink and snacks in 5 minutes. Cost is $28, less $5 credit... More

The website booking isn't very clear, but the SuperLux and the LuxLite are both in the same theater. The LuxLite is the first few rows and the SuperLux seats are the back rows, higher up and with much nicer seats (fully reclining). Same menu, but SuperLux gets service the whole time and LuxLite only gets service before the show, unless... More
