My husband and I saw The Force Awakens here. We left feeling ripped off. They sell themselves as a luxury theater, dine while you watch, reserved seating, soft lie back seats, etc. Apparently the theater owners want to discourage people from going with the low-priced seats. When the concierge or whatever she was called up the seating chart for us,... More

Loved the more expensive package. Seats really comfortable. REALLY CLEAN. Had fun. All the fresh buttered popcorn you can eat. The food was reasonable and the hamburger and calamari was excellent. Looking forward to many more movies here

When this opened it was new and exciting because of comfy reserved seating. But they charge 20 dollars for the cheapest level. Since then other theaters have renovated to even better seats, and they don't charge any more...so much prefer. AMC Framingham or Burlington.

My husband and I was transferred to the East Coast from NV during the Winter of 2013. It was about time for the release of The Hobbit (I'm a HUGE fan) and was devastated we couldn't view it at the Arclight Cinema in LA. Then my husband found the Showcase Superlux outside of Boston, and it SAVED everything! We were... More

Crazy business model with relatively few seats per cinema... Often booked well in advance .... We were shut out once and accommodated once. Seats are very comfortable / huge. Food and service is reasonable but still seems very odd experience for movie theater. Much prefer the smaller rep theaters like West Newton and Coolidge Corner.... They are licensed too ...... More

Want to go to the movies and sit in a superwide recliner (including raised feet) with a table and food service while you watch your movie? The new American version of going to the movies....you have to try it to believe it. So I did. I picked a movie I wanted to see, and went with a friend. We had... More

We've seen three films at this theatre. We also frequent the Lux theatre in Dedham's Legacy Place. One reviewer mentioned the sound in this theatre was "too quiet." I think he may be correct, but that isn't a negative for me. I'm normally in the habit of bringing earplugs with me to the movies as the sound levels are loud... More

We went here for the experience: good food, in a nice comfortable movie theatre. It was just that. I had a burger which was great, and I really enjoyed the seating. My only complaint was that the volume was not loud enough. It really took away from there movie.

At first it seem silly, but once you settle into the seats, and are served your beverage and snack of choice, it feels like flying first class. Expensive when you total every thing up, but good for an occasson. I would say best for couples.
