BOSTON Guide on

Welcome to the BOSTON City Guide on OTL City Guides!

If OTL sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same family-run brand behind the unique OTL Seat Fillers club. And, yes, seat fillers ARE in Boston and throughout New England!

Things to Do, Things to Eat, and Things to Learn are included in the Boston Guide. Here you’ll find the official Boston event calendar powered by Evvnt. You always have access to the latest shows and activities since it’s updated hourly. Local directories, restaurant recommendations, and all kinds of fun and useful info are included.

No reviews, no comments, no negativity. We are happy to post Boston blogs, season schedules, and other Boston-related information. However, we will leave discussions to social media.  Welcome!

Seat Fillers in BOSTON

Would YOU enjoy being a Boston area seat filler?

Consider these questions:

  • Is it nice to get free tickets?
  • Does live entertainment appeal to me, such as plays, musicals, comedy, and music?
  • Will it be fun to see what shows pop up out of the blue (but aware that they aren’t always available)?
  • Would it be fun to treat my family and friends to free tickets?
  • Do I have a budget that allows me to pay $10 to $15 per month for all-inclusive seating privileges?

Ask yourself one more question if you answered yes to all of the above: 

What am I waiting for?

Would you like to expand the audience of your show, event, service, or activity?

If so, then local seat filling through is effective marketing for the 21st century!

It works like this:

  • Tell OTL how many tickets or admissions you’d like to offer to seat fillers
  • Members can reserve tickets in their member area
  • You will receive a reservation/will-call list from OTL
  • On the day of the event (or activity), you distribute the tickets or manage admissions.

Providing complimentary tickets or admission is all you need to do. However, OTL never announces your efforts (so your regular ticket sales aren’t impacted!).

Boston residents are lucky to live in one of the most historic and beautiful cities in the United States. There’s always something to do in Boston, from catching a Red Sox game at Fenway Park to checking out the latest art exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts.

With its colonial history and vibrant city life, it’s no wonder that Boston is such a popular destination for tourists, too. If you’re ever in town, be sure to check out some of these great spots! And, if you’re a local, why not venture out and explore like a tourist. There’s always something new to discover!

Movies in Boston

AMC, Patriot, and Showcase are Boston’s biggest movie theater chains. There are AMC cinemas all over the city, including Boylston Street in Chestnut Hill and the AMC Loews Boston Common 19. The theaters in this category often have the newest releases and provide reclining seats, a wide selection of food options, and plenty of amenities.

What about a drive-in cinema for a truly unique moviegoing experience? You won’t see many drive-ins these days, but you can still watch a movie at the Topsfield Drive-In or Mendon Twin Drive-In.

Boston Museums

You can learn a great deal about a city’s history and culture by visiting a museum. There are a variety of world-class museums in Boston. Boston’s museums have something for everyone, from art to science to history to nature.

The Boston Museum of Fine Arts is one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive art museums. It has nearly 500,000 works of art on display, making it a must-see for art lovers visiting Boston. Guests can explore the interactive exhibits and hands-on exhibits at the Museum of Science. Both Boston Tea Party Museum and the USS Constitution Museum are located in the city and provide valuable insight into two of the most significant events in American history.

Live Theater in Boston

In lists like we feature on our Boston Theaters page, the most obvious choices for prominent theaters in Boston are always included. Charles Playhouse, which has won several awards for its productions, is among them. Additionally, the Huntington Theatre Company presents many well-loved productions.

However, there have also been numerous non-traditional Boston theatres in recent years that have sprung up. These range from small venues for experimental performances to large venues for large-scale productions comparable to those held in traditional theaters.

Frequently Asked Questions About the BOSTON Guide

What’s the Boston Guide on

Our Boston Guide focuses on What to Do, Eat, and Learn in Boston (and beyond). Powered by Evvnt, the events calendar is auto-updated every hour. Additional resources include lists of movie theaters, museums, theaters and theater groups, restaurant recommendations, and more. Boston area information is provided by the team at OTL and locals who know their stuff.

Is the OTL Boston Guide the same as OTL Seat Fillers?

The OTL City Guides and Seat Fillers websites are sister sites. OTL Boston Seat Fillers is a membership club open to members only, while the Boston City Guide is a free resource available to anyone.  Public events are listed on the Boston City Guides events calendar, but free tickets offered to Boston area seat fillers are posted privately.

How can I get my information included in the Boston City Guide?

It’s easy! OTL loves to share information. So, all you have to do is use the submissions form – In addition to seasonal schedules and blog posts, the Boston City Guide will feature discounts, business launches, and other news and resources throughout Boston and New England. However, the content needs to remain relevant for a while. We can’t publish one-day events or postings with a time-sensitive nature (at least not yet).
