Information for this tour was contributed by Scott Norwood.
Originally a single-screen called "University Theatre" (see old sign), now a 5-screen. The big screen (#1) holds about 500 and is still there and is still decent (and has a Norelco and ran Vertigo in 70mm in 1996). The former balcony is now two smaller screens, and two shoeboxes are now in the former backstage area. The original lobby area is now retail space.
This started appearing in the Boston Globe as a USA Cinema in 1986.
Though some articles say Loews acquired USA Cinemas as early as 1988, they did not begin advertising in the Boston Globe as Loews until 3/26/1989.
