BLIZZARD WATCH – Boston Area Theatres – 6 pm update

Due to the first huge snowstorm in the northeast in several years, several theaters are closing early or shutting down altogether. Check PNRBoston throughout the weekend to see who is open and who isn’t. Next update around 4 PM on 2/8.

12:51 PM – Governor Deval Patrick has signed an executive order banning non-emergency vehicles from all roadways effective at 4 PM today. This is likely to cause ALL theaters to close by that point, but no official comment has been issued by Regal, Patriot, Showcase, or Entertainment Cinemas. AMC Theatres in the Boston area will close at the end of the currently playing show, with all locations expected to close by 2:30 PM. We will keep PNRBoston readers up to date with the latest info as it comes in. Send your theatre newstips, and blizzard-related photos & videos to us at – we’ll post them for our readers to see!

6:18 PM – after spending the last hour on the phone we have verified all but one of the theaters in the area are indeed closed  – some theaters will remain closed on Saturday as well. We will update the listing on Saturday with opening times or if they will remain closed.
