Coolidge Corner Theatre

The sad fact is that big corporate multiplexes show big corporate movies. Truly, you are what you screen. Which makes Brookline’s Coolidge Corner Theatre an art-house jewel among the plastic giants. This 75-year-old, not-for-profit space boasts a classy schedule of documentary, international, and independent movies. The Coolidge also keeps a hand in the community by hosting readings, live performances, and film festivals.
