    Saw Ex Machina in like a 20 seat room, which was definitely a good way to see it.

    Jamie Lin · June 27

    Try to see a film in the screening rooms, they are beautiful and only see ~20 max.

    They allow you to bring outside food into the theatre. Order a pizza across the street at OTTO and enjoy it during your movie.

    A non-mainstream dream! We love it! That's why this non-conformist movie-theatre made it on Dig's #StudentGuide to Boston Cinema. Read more

  • The Capital Grille

    The Coolidge Corner Theatre was built as a church in 1906, was redesigned as an Art Deco movie palace in 1933, and never closed its doors since then.

    See the midnight showings on film during the weekends. Nothing like seeing jurassic park in theaters again. Also, become a member. We saved a ton during the year by being members!

    The gold screen room speakers were incredibly quiet; don't hesitate to go downstairs and ask them to turn up the volume if you can't hear.

    Cult films, film festivals, and non-mainstream movies. Thanks for keeping us interested. Read more

    This theatre is doing it right and fighting back with their event "Big Screen Classics." Thank goodness! Read more

    Few places take pride in the magic of the movies like the Coolidge. They carry some of the best new selections, along with older classics (check out their schedule for special events).

    Jenny Mackintosh · January 7, 2013
  • Nick S.

    See the midnight movie series. Great acquisition team here. Good times.

    Nick Sayers · November 5, 2012
  • Jason F.

    Make it a priority to see a flick here instead of at an over-priced, oversized corporate movie theatre chain. The atmosphere is great and the movie theatre seats are extra comfortable.

    Jason Feldman · August 13, 2012
  • Jake S.

    Auditorium 2 is my favorite, with a balcony-but-not-quite at the top. See a film there if you can.

    Jake Smith · June 12, 2012
  • Yoav S.

    Rent the small rooms for a private screening with ~10 friends.

    This place needs no tips. It speaks for itself. But fine, here's one: you can get beer & wine to watch with your movies. Can't beat that!

    Go for a midnight movie. Shows everything from horror shockers to campy classics. Science on Stage series is great, too.

    Sit in the back and drink the wine you snuck in while watching a show in a great theater. Shhh, don't tell.

    Spike and Mike's Festival of Animation - it certainly won't hurt to enjoy these short films in, how should we put this, an “elevated” state. ($9, 11:59 p.m., November 19th and 20th). Read more
