AMC Loews Harvard Square
Harvard Square's movie theater recently closed.
The AMC Loews Harvard Square 5 was originally known as the Harvard Square Theater. It opened in 1926 with a single screen and 1,700 seats and balcony box seats. The entrance and lobby faced Massachusetts Avenue. In time, the theater divided into smaller theater spaces and the lobby turned into a retail space.
Pictured: The Loews theater was loud with excitement as fans of the "Rocky Horror Show" prepared for a Halloween screening. One of the first live performance of Rocky took place at this theater in the 1980s, which spawned a pop culture movement.
