Many restaurants to choose from (Vietnamese, Thai, Italian, New American), plus Licks Ice Cream, local used book store, movie theater, sandwich and bagel shops, Peete and Starbucks coffee, drug stores, etc. Five stops from Fenway and seven from Copley Square.

Goldscreen viewing room is superb- like having your own private home entertainment room. Truly special. And as always, wonderful flicks.

This is my all time favorite movie theater, hands down. If you're looking for the big cinematic experience, this isn't really the place, but if you really want to watch one of your favorite movies, or a classic you've been meaning to see, in a beautiful building, on the screen, with wine, this is the place. They have such interesting... More

Be sure to get your tickets well in advance as we discovered they sell out quickly. It is a small, unpretentious theatre that obviously has a large following. The film selections were fantastic. We saw Boyhood and A Most Wanted Man. Each was excellent. Check out their website for films and schedules. There are several good places to eat nearby... More

For me, the Coolidge theater provides an ideal theater experience. They show fantastic films, many you won't find elsewhere. And the overall vibe of the place is awesome! Red velvet curtains and everything. LOVE this place.

This was a really nice independent theater. I saw two movies, one in the main theater which was in excellent condition and one in a small screening room which was OK. The art deco vibe was really cool. This venue really adds to Brookline's charm.

I love this theatre and that the architectural interior details were appreciated and thus maintained. The screening room is fabulous, as well as the other two pieces of the theatre. That aside, the choice of films is stellar and I will ALWAYS be a backer of The Coolidge! THANKS FOR BEING IN BROOKLINE!

This art nouveau theatre is beautiful to look at and shows great movies. The main screen is one of the largest in the area and there are smaller ones upstairs. Their snack bar has a wide variety and good quality snacks. If we have a choice of seeing a movie at the Coolidge Corner or one of the big chains,... More
