bestest place to see movies 'off the grid.' – I like to see less known movies. The Kendal is great but the Coolidge has coffee and is old school and the best and my butt is comfy in the old seats. No they dont go to your head nor recline but they are great none the less.Since none of my friends have interest in these types of flicks, I often end up going solo and it isn't weird at all. Usually there are others solo so it's definitely cool.
Many other things to do in that neighborhood also. Warning: ;many movies definitely sell out so it is worthwhile to but tix through the web to ensure you get in. Or to go early. If you go early don't worry about passing time. Everyone working here is friendly. This place has a different vibe than other theaters and is a great spot! Try it out! I have also seen music and movie combined performances with an after talk, those sell out but are fantastic!
I like the indie films – I went here for a date and it was a lot of fun. I like how they're always showing old movies that bring back memories, and independent films. It is always refreshing since I was getting bored after having watched everything out in the other theaters.
Authentic, old-school movie theater charms moviegoers with its original art deco light fixtures and intimate lobby area. – In Short
Brookline's premier independent movie house mostly deals in foreign and artsy fare. Host to numerous festivals and guest speakers like David Sedaris and John Waters, the Coolidge is a favorite of local literary types. Erected in 1933, the Coolidge's old-school, vaudevillian style movie house is complete with curtains that open and close over the giant screen. Also the area's only nonprofit theater, the Coolidge survives thanks to its loyal regulars and generous donors.
