This is in the heart of a college area. It will serve NEU, WIT, MassArt, and everyone else living on the Hill.

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

exactly.

also -- how do you figure that boston has "too many" movie theaters? right now there's:

* AMC Boston Common
* Regal Cinemas Fenway
* ShowPlace ICON
* AMC South Bay

Both the Aquarium IMAX and the Mugar Omni are different animals, altogether, so you currently have a city of 700,000(ish) people served by a whopping total of 4 movie complexes.

If you want to toss in theaters not actually in, but near, Boston then, fine: Assembly, Kendall, and Somerville Theater (and sure, Brattle, too, if you like) -- making the total a staggering 8 theaters for an area of well over 1,000,000 (if you're gonna count Somerville and Cambridge's movie houses, you have to add in their populations, too) people.

Donít forget the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline. In addition, ArcLight is opening at the Hub on Causeway with 15 screens.

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

sure, but (again) if you're going to add in Brookline's cinemas then we also add the population. So -- 9 movie complexes for over a million people. Doesn't seem at all excessive or oversaturated to me.

I didn't include the future Hub on Causway complex b/c I was just listing currently-open movie houses in Boston.

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

This was going to be a grand slam home run--Roxbury's development equivalent of Rice's 6-18-75/500' blast over the CF Flag Pole at Fenway. A new standard for neighborhood supertalls just 37' shy of the 420' standard Vancouver fare....

Then, for no apparent reason, it was reduced to a craptastic, ground rule double.

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

Donít forget Apple Cinemas by Fresh Pond.

Edit...
Also, Iíd include Legacy Place Dedham, Arlington Cinemas, Showcase Superlux Chestnut Hill, Revere Cinemas, Davis Sq, and possibly W Newton Theater (tho itís a longer haul than the others) if you want to include all the theaters that are reasonably close (driving wise) to the urban core zones.

Just saying, south bay is a ghost town, so is ICON, regal is just moderately busy.

They've secured all the necessary permissions and just have to sign the ground lease.



That sounds too optimistic
One of the developers at the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan meeting said shovels in the ground late april early may.
