AMC Fenway 13

Keeping up with Hollywood’s barrage of blockbusters, tearjerkers, and indies-gone-mainstream is less daunting when you can do it at the AMC Fenway 13. This theater’s strongest appeal is its easy access: convenient $4 parking, a close-by Green Line stop, and the luxury of avoiding downtown congestion. Inside, arm yourself with popcorn (the butter is do-it-yourself) and a monster soda, and settle into the comfy stadium-style seating. The largest of the 13 auditoriums has more than 550 seats, so you’ll worry less about lines and more about finding the ideal place from which to soak up the Sony Digital surround-sound system and see the massive 62-foot-wide screen. Perks like these nearly justify the $9 ticket price. Nearly.
