Best of Boston

2004 BEST Movie Theater, Independent

Kendall Square Cinema

Enjoying the artistry of independent cinema doesn’t have to mean enduring drafty old theaters. The Kendall Square is as state-of-the-art as any megaplex, but with niche amenities like baked goodies from Dancing Deer Baking Company and green tea. Sure, the tickets and concessions are a little pricey, but inside the nine intimate Dolby Digital Surround EX theaters, the seats are comfy and come equipped with cup holders. Cheap parking and a convenient shuttle from the MIT-Kendall Square T stop make getting there a cinch.
