This was one of the first theaters where you could reserve a specific comfy seat. The prices are high but you get a $5 "voucher" good toward food/drinks from the menu. The staff are all in suits and the decor is chic and upscale. When...More

Went to Super Lux today. Parked in back and walked around. Signage was hard to see in front given that it is paired with a restaurant (restaurant sign more visible) and the building next door with a super lux sign is vacant. I called and...More

Cut flowers in the bathroom, a fancy lobby bar, plush leather recliners (ok, I’d keep these!)...all in all, a bit over the top for a movie theater. I’d trade a few of the frills to get ticket prices down a bit, but it’s definitely a...More

I have visited this Chestnut Hill Super Lux theatre several times. They don't seem to be able to attract the proper staff. From the first moment you are approached for your ticket to allow you entrance, to the last point of leaving the premises, the...More

I opt for tickets early. I pick the best center seats, not too close. There's always plenty of room in and near the seats. Great martinis and great food (I like the turkey club sandwich). It is not cheap, but I greatly enjoy my time...More

Yuck. Big screen and good sound but this is an enormous waste of space paid for by high ticket prices and low wage service staff. I would never go again. Food too pricey for us to order anything.

It's not cheap but its a great way to watch a movie. Less crowded, seat-side service, and good food/beverage choices. Get your tickets very early as it sells out quickly. Definitely worth a try.
