iPic: Mostly big new releases (Fury) with a few classics thrown in (A Nightmare on Elm Street and Casablanca this week).
ArcLight: Similar, but with no preshow ads. Bonus: film exhibits in the lobby, and occasional live-streaming Q&As after the show.
Edge: ArcLight. Tomorrow, they’ve even got a 10th anniversary Q&A with the cast of Saw.
iPic: A menu conducive to dining in the dark. Think lobster rolls and warm biscuits.
ArcLight: Housemade caramel corn in the theater, pizza and lobster rolls after the show.
Edge: iPic. Because you can also summon servers via call button.
iPic: Beer, wine, bottled cocktails and liquid-nitrogen slushies.
ArcLight: Beer, wine and cocktails like The Heat, with tequila and ancho chilies.
Edge: iPic. They’ve got liquid-nitrogen slushies.
iPic: Eight screens, all with reservable leather stadium seats. Or for a few extra bucks, upgrade to reclining seats with personal pillows and blankets.
ArcLight: 16 theaters, with all-reserved seating in plush chairs and a no-late-seating policy.
Edge: iPic. We’ll take blankets. Movies get long sometimes.
