    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).

    Best independent movie theater in the Boston area. They have really good hot chocolate to keep you warm in the winter. Also, check out monthly screenings of "The Room" starring Tommy Wiseau. Read more

    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.

    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!

    With a mix of first-run and independent productions, this theatre has been delighting audiences since 1933. Big names (including Meryl Streep) have been on recent panels. Read more

    tickets to shows can sell out quickly, so get there with enough of a time cushion and just enjoy the atmosphere

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    Just go & see a movie marathon at this place, make sure the flix is at least 15 years old. Also grab a bucket of that fresh popcorn with "REAL" butter.

    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!

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

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

    See a film in an old school cinema. Also, they have beer. And I'm not talking about in a paper cup, I'm talking about a glass of beer.
