“Historic, beautiful, alive and trendy”

Coolidge Corner Theater
Ranked #2 of 20 things to do in Brookline
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 1, 2013

A beautiful art deco architectural gem that has become one of the best art houses in the country and now with an affiliation with Sundance (one of only a handful in the US). The programming is diverse and innovative, the atmosphere is very comfortable. Four different screens, different size spaces (online reservations a good idea for the two smaller theaters, through their own site, at much lower fulfillment charges than the commercial movie houses). A very European feel to the place, artisan beer and a broad wine selection in the lobby (ever-changing for the seasons). While it fits comfortably into the Coolidge Corner neighborhood, it is truly a national art house. And a not-for-profit foundation worth supporting to assure its future.

The Coolidge Corner Theater is a true GEM. Not only are the movies very good, but the theater is very involved in the Community and offers lots of special programs for children, seniors, students, etc. I rate it a TEN.

We love the Coolidge! Great selection of movies - mainly indies and foreign films. The renovation has made it much more comfortable and the availability of wine and beer is genius! Highly recommended...

It's a great little neighborhood theater. This is where you'll find arty and foreign films as well as documentaries. It's about 3 miles from downtown Boston and easily accessible on the Cleveland Circle green line.

This place is a really impressive theater and has a bunch of great snacks and drinks. However they mainly show smaller indie films and so its hard to go there casually - you pretty much have to plan your visit around a specific indie movie.
