I love the Coolidge. Most of the theaters are pretty small but the character of the theater along with great independent films that they show are worth it. They have great midnight shows on the weekends and they serve beer and wine too.

Great location, shabby chic, fun and great flicks. Very eclectic films, shorts, etc. so there's something for everyone. Speakers often have audience spill over here from bookstore across the street. Great place.

Everything about the Coolidge is perfect. The movies, the theaters, the live events, the fact you can get beer and wine -it's all exactly what you look for in a movie theater

It's great to visit a classic Art Deco cinema that has been maintained while modified and utilized to remain a commercially sustainable business. The original auditorium is fundamentally in tact, with the balcony carved out to form the second cinema - all well done. Two more cinemas, one a 45 seater, called the Screening Room was frankly disappointing for its... More

I think the Coolidge Corner Theater goes out of its way to hire the rudest people to work there. From the people who sell the tickets to the guys who clean the theaters. For some reason they all look the same, all black clothes and eyeglasses with heavy black frames. Like they all went to the same bad film school... More

"It's only playing at Coolidge Corner Theater" - said anyone of any up and coming limited release movie. In the heart of Brookline, close to delicious restaurants, fun shops and the T, sits a pearl of movie theater experiences. It's a clash of the olden days theater, with artsy deco interior and big lighted sign exterior, and modern conveniences, like... More

Our favorite theater. The main theater is beautiful and comfortable. They show great movies, and the best: they have draft beers.. Once you've been here, you never want to go to AMC/LOEWS anymore!

Great local independent theater in the heart of Coolidge Corner. Join if you are local. They need your support and it is more than worthwhile. They show great films and there are lots of benefits for members! Something for everyone from tots to grandparents!

I was at this theater for the Johnny Cupcakes Home Alone event. It's very charming, I even enjoyed a beer with the movie! We will be at the next Johnny event as well!

If you are in Brookline and are looking to see a movie, try this theater. They show old classic movies and movies that are more in the "art" of movie making. The theater is an art deco style theater with ornate interiors. The place is alway full so get there early.
