    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

    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.

    See a midnight screening of The Room... and don't forget to bring plastic spoons with you!

    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

    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

    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 M. · January 7, 2013
  • 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 F. · 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 S. · June 12, 2012

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

    Coolidge @fter Midnite. Late-night, weekend programming for the cool insomniac crowd, including horrifying, weird, camp, avant garde, tripped-out movies, interactive and cult niche live performances.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Ryan T.

    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!

  • Beau G.

    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.

    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!

    aaron c. · February 9, 2012

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