First time to the movie theaters in years, here in the USA. I was impressed! Tickets are issued by self-service totems without a ticket sales person. We've seen this partially implemented in Brazil, but not 100%. We were also impressed with the huge waiting area,...More

Great comfy seats but the service and food was terrible. Everything was cold, chips, burgers,etc. Ordered Nachos as starter came 5 min before film ended as was stone cold. Refused to pay for food and left.

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

It’s an enjoyable experience. Comfortable seats and good service. The food is well prepared and makes for a nice night
