Kendall Square Cinema

The Kendall Square Cinema is everything a movie theater should be, with nine large screens, perfect climate control, clean bathrooms, and sufficiently ample and inexpensive ($1) parking. The movies are a little offbeat—no Jurassic Parkhere. Instead, you’ll find the independent film you read about in the Sunday New York Timesand thought you’d never get to see. Don’t be late—the previews are fabulous.
