Best of Boston

2001 Best Cinema, North

Cabot Street Cinema Theatre

Beverly’s answer to the Kendall Square Cinema is as funky as it is friendly. The diverse roster of screenings (don’t take that plurality literally—only one movie at a time is shown here) includes everything from second-run films to indies. Service is swift and conversational (most of this crowd is local), and tickets are a bargain at $6. Sick and tired of South Patch Kids? There’s a small café serving coffee, tea, and pastries.
