This is my fave movie theater in the Boston area. While it is more expensive than a standard movie theater (the Luxe Lite option is $20/person and includes a $5 food/beverage voucher), you get what you pay for and then some: plush seats with plenty of leg room; wait service with a pretty decent cocktail and food menu; and the...

We had a very poor dining experience, though the movie itself was excellent and the seats comfy. However I would not pay $20/ticket to go here ever again (includes a $5 credit toward any food you order). I ordered a burger medium rare, no onion and no cheese, and I got well done. I had to cross the theatre to... More

A bit pricey for the dinner seats. $58 Actual food was expensive. $112 Appetizers were good and very tasty. Salads were in dire need of dressing. Drinks were OK. If it were a normal seating at DAVIO'S, you would ask for dressing, but all of this hustle and bustle went on during the movie. A novelty, but not for regular... More

If you like being overcharged for ordinary food to be eaten in the dark while watching a movie then this is your kind of place. After buying tickets, my son ordered a turkey club and I had a large popcorn and soda. The total was......$50!! Sorry but we'll never go back and the "luxury" experience was completely inappropriate for a... More

SuperLux is a more relaxed and comfortable movie experience. All of the screens have 4k projection with good sound, but don't expect an IMAX experience. Parking is easy and free. LuxLite (currently $20) comprises the first 3-4 rows, depending on the auditorium. The third or 4th row give good viewing angle and they aren't that close to the screen. Seats... More

Great way to see a movie but kind of expensive. No screaming/talking kidsw which was a bonus. All you can eat popcorn, but one tub was enough. Would split a hamburg with my husband next time- good sandwich but way too big for me. No rims on tray tables so food can go flying! wish I had the reclinign chairs... More

Very comfortable way to see a movie, price seems outrageous at first but if you visit the snack bar at the movie theater it sort of comes out even. Service can be spotty, a few staff are great and remember you from visit to visit--others not so much. Online reservations can be challenging but manager is always willing to help.

Ok folks this is an upscale movie experience. You will not get a $2 ticket and $2 drinks. The seats are fantastic and in the upper section they are power recline. At 28 dollars a person it is not as expensive as the first seems since you have free parking and you get free popcorn and you get $5 off... More

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.
