The luxury cinema opens its doors


A new eight-screen movie theater has opened at Hanover Crossing – a mixed-use development still under construction that replaced the demolished Hanover Mall.

Lux Hanover’s Showcase Cinema opened Nov. 16 with screenings of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” “Lyle, Lyle Crocodile,” “Black Adams,” “She Said,” and “Ticket to Paradise.”

The upscale theater has a lobby bar and lounge, and concessions include cocktails and local craft beers from Burke’s Alewerks, Mayflower Brewing Co., and Untold Brewing.

Ticket prices will be reduced on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for seniors. The theater also offers private screenings and children’s birthday parties.

“We are truly excited to open the new Showcase Cinema at Lux Hanover Crossing to provide South Shore moviegoers with the best cinematic experience possible,” said Mark Malinowski, Vice President of Global Marketing for Showcase Cinemas.

Showcase Cinema helped fund Hingham’s fireworks this year and is partnering with the Scituate Arts Association for a December 4th benefit event called ‘Art of the Movies’, which features an auction of works by local art based on film themes. (Tickets for the benefit are $10 and available here.)

Hanover Crossing is located on 104 acres on Route 53 and includes apartments, a market cart, Trader Joe’s and Macy’s. More shops, restaurants and entertainment businesses are on the way to the site. The development was planning to open in late 2021 but was delayed by the pandemic and supply chain issues.
