With Another new Movie Theater, A Look At Boston’s Moviegoing Past And Future #In_BostonJanuary 14, 2020
No new first-run theaters have opened within city limits since 2001.
All that has changed in the past two years with the AMC South Bay in Dorchester (opened December 2017), ShowPlace ICON in Seaport (opened February 2018), and the newest, ArcLight Cinema at the West End’s Hub on Causeway development (which opened last month).
What sets ArcLight apart, then, is that it’s at once a deluxe multiplex and an art house cinema.

ICON’s adult seats sell from $11.50 to $23 and ArcLight’s range from $11 to $16.
Two people buy tickets at the self-serve kiosk in the lobby of the ShowPlace ICON in the Seaport.
Beyond multiplex amenities, ArcLight also has plans to screen 35mm and 70mm film.
In addition to being able to regularly see in-person talent with films and an incredibly robust film festival circuit, it’s plausible to see a “film on film” nearly any day of the week in the Boston area.
“The number one thing always at issue for movie theaters — whether the fanciest or most run down — is quality of movies,” says Judge.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
