“A Great Movie Experience”

Coolidge Corner Theater
Ranked #2 of 20 things to do in Brookline
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 October 2013

The Coolidge an independent non-profit movie theater presents an interesting variety of films: not only popular current releases but smaller films that are not wildly available. You get a friendly staff, excellent popcorn candy, cookies and drinks including beer and wine.

Among the gem-like facets of this theater are restored art deco stylings, regular (usually yearly) showings of the classics that need a big screen (like Lawrence of Arabia), a super knowledgeable staff, the best new films, and screenings of live simulcast performances from the Royal National Theater in London. The whole world, all of cinema history, all on the biggest screen around - not just a gem, but the Hope Diamond of Theaters! Did I mention it is non-profit?

Intimate theatre...independent movies and reasonably priced concessions.
We love going to this theatre, instead of the big chain theaters.

You can even get a glass of wine and a tasty dessert at this theatre. It's a friendly neighborhood place tucked into the heart of Brookline. They always have interesting independent films. It's a gem.

Great selection of independent films. The interior design is a step back in time to when going to a movie was a more cosmopolitian affair.
