“Great community cinema”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We are so lucky to have the Coolidge in Brookline. It is a classic neighborhood movie theater. They show great movies, have community events, are good citizens, and the building itself is a classic. We are all the richer for it. Be sure to become a member and support their mission!

“The Best Place to see films in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Fine 1st run and classic films are shown in this restored Art Deco cinema. Good sound system, membership options, travel group-this is much more than a neighborhood movie house.

“Great place to see a movie!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is an old, well kept theatre that reminds you of days gone by. Well situated in Brookline on Harvard St next to the T, this place places first run movies, independent movies and some old movies that make you feel like you have gone back in time.

The main theatre is gorgeous with the carvings, the heavy red curtain over the stage and the second floor balcony. They also have two smaller rooms that, while intimate, do not detract from the feeling of seeing a movie. Plus I hear you can rent the smaller rooms out which is kind of cool should you have a party need.

The prices are pretty on par with movies these days if not a little cheaper than the big guys like AMC, Lowes, Cinemark, etc. Plus you can purchase beer and wine and their popcorn is not insanely over priced. Definitely makes for a fun movie going experience. I hope movie theatres like this survive forever, because it would be so sad to be forced to see movies at the large, modern and ugly theatres with the rest of the masses.

“Our favorite Coolidge corner spot”

A great place. This is really a neighborhood gem, and this is our second year as members, if you live nearby, we highly recommend getting a membership! And the popcorn.
