The theater used to be a showcase to see all class movies including things like " art Films" that usually go to Kendall. The place is dirty the concessions are unkempt it looks like a gang of theives wandered through there during spring break!!! At ten dollars a POP!!! you should be ashamed... You always hear during the endless promo spote you appreciate our business then do so and not the almighty buck!!!!!

Two stars because the sound system was great. Everything else aweful. 17 theaters upstairs and two down. Most of the workers were downstairs. Hallway garbages overflowing. Bathroom garbages overflowing with paper towels all over the floor. Hand dryers broken. Paper towels empty. The movie previews start and simultaneously the trivia loop is showing. Took multiple visits to John the manager to get the previews fixed and it was quite obvious he was satisfied with their operation. The movie started and the lights stayed on requiring additional visits to the young manager. The concession stand workers were all standing around talking and it took a couple of minutes for one to come to the register for an order at which time they said they were out of Milk Duds as well as two other candies. The theater said now seating yet we walked in and were booted out rudely so they could clean but the theater was anything but clean when we got in there. At least it was expensive!

OK, so parking is pretty absurd, and if you have a car you're better off driving to Regal where the validated parking is only $4. But for everything else, AMC wins! They have more theaters and a wider variety of movies and showtimes. The seats are a lot comfier, and viewers can lift the armrests up to hold hands or cuddle with their date. Sure, tickets are expensive, but they're expensive everywhere. I love the floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor. The ticket takers are on the first floor, and then customers are left to their own desires on the second floor. There are escalators and I think elevators which is useful for the elderly/disabled.
The movie theatre is nice and big. 2 levels. Downstairs there is only 2 theatres. Upstairs more. There is 1 concession stand downstairs and a big one upstairs and 2 for 2 sides of the theatres. The staff is ok and the food is ok. The restrooms are clean. The price is ok it's downtown area and a movie theatre don't expect to pay a botlle of water for $1. Get serious it's no convenience store so the price will be higher. Parking is hard to find and very expensive again you are in Downtown Boston not the suburbs. I will advise people to park a little outside of the city and use the T. The closest T stop is Boylston on the green line and the red line T stop Park street. If you don't like to walk or can't Boylston will be a better choice for you. Park street T stop you will have to walk a little. I love this theatre. One negative about this place: too many kids mostly blacks and very loud and dirty and disrespectful. Who raised you guys to be so rude and uneducated? Pigs? Also recently I went there and saw a movie and I could not enjoy my movie, why? Well I could not believe what I was hearing and seeing. Not couples doing it lol. MICE. Yes I am for real nasty mice. They need to call the exterminator. The theatre is dirty because people (mostly kids but some adults too) are dirty and do not put their food in trash cans available all over the place for them. And yes it's a great invite for rodents. I could not finish watching the movie and I had to leave. Downstairs I saw a cleaner, I told him about the mice situation and I was even more upset because dude could not speak a word of english. It's good to have a mixed staff but what is the point if the worker can't understand me and can't respond back? I gave them 3 stars but I had to go with 2 because of the mice, the rude kids and the cleaner who refuses to make the effort to speak another language and to understand me. Truereview here to tell you te truth.

I have been watching movies at AMC (formerly Loews) Boston Common since its opening. In the past it was great, but has seen a steep decline over the past two years. The floors of the common areas are always filthy, the seats in the theaters are sticky and gross. I can't watch a movie without being disturbed by unruly teens who talk on their cell phones during the film.

Finaly, Boston has a movie theatre that lives up to the rest of the world. The place is huge and features stadium seating with VERY comfy seats. I'm slowly getting used to the outrageous prices but its the same everywhere so I won't hold it against them. Try smuggling in your own food. I can't wait to go again.

WHAT A THEATER!
I WAS AT THE LOEWS THEATER LOCATED AT THE BOSTON COMMOMS TODAY. I SEEN DIE ANOTHER DAY!
THE SOUND EFFECT WAS INCREDIBLE. MY HEART WAS BEATING FROM THE SOUNDS EFFECTS. MY EYES FIXED AND NEVER LEFT THE SCREEN!
MY ONLY COMPLAINT: THE CHAIRS NEED TO BE MORE COMFORTABLE. RECLINING CHAIRS IS WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST.
I WOULD DIFINITELY TRAVEL 50 MILES JUST TO WATCH A MOVIE AT THIS THEATER!

I love the Boston Common Theatre. Being directly acrooss from ""The Commons"" gives this theatre a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. Especially at night time. It's location is exceptionally convenient being close to the MBTA. This is definately one of my two favorites.

The theater is very nice except the glow that the red lights that line the isles give to the screen. All the blacks in the movie are a washed out red which is very distracting to me. If they could lower the brightness of these safety lights, this theater would be much more attractive.

After paying top dollar ($10) for a movie ticket, you'd like to be able to lose yourself in the plot. Both times I've been to this theater, I've been distracted by appalling audience behavior -- the most recent was the presence of a two-year old in a PG13-rated film. The real kicker was when the mother of the child swore (the f word) at a full theater of viewers when they asked her to quiet her child. Where are the movie attendants when this type of activity occurs? Who makes people accountable for bad theater-viewing behavior? That was the last time I'll go to this theater.
