Look, there are the superplexes with every latest release that's got all the endurance of a cotton candy meal. Fun. Filling. Fleeting. Then there are places you can go to see classics, even stuff high faultin' enough to be _film_. that'll stay with you. Coolidge...More

A neighborhood institution and community destination, this indie nonprofit theatre is a great place to catch both new releases and classic films. Special events - including kids' cinema and midnight showings, directors' talks and more - make the Coolidge a "must-do" when visiting Brookline. Added...More

It's a well-run theater with multiple viewing rooms, very comfortable, with a large snack counter and a wine bar for late afternoon and evening performances.

I have been going to this cinema for over 30 years. They show a good display of independent movies. They have many special events - we saw Liv Ulman discuss an Ingmar Bergman film “Autumn Sonata”. Very, very interesting

I love this place. No IMAX no 3D but that doesn’t matter. Great bar, great events and great staff make up for that!

CCT looks and feels its age--it opened in 1933! But if you can do without reclining seats, it is worth your movie $$: great homemade popcorn with real butter, baked goods and artisan chocolates, ice cream & fancy popsicles, beer and wine, friendly staff with...More

It's like time travel; a real pre-war (II) movie experience. Popcorn just tastes better in that place. Don't go there to watch Terminator XXI, rather take in the latest indie film or a re-run of Casablanca. Beer and wine is available in the lobby.

This is a nice small cinema with a good selection of movies. Prices are fair! However, a couple of not so good points.. very difficult to get someone with a wheelchair or other walking aid in and seated comfortably. Seats are very narrow and not...More
