2021 Best Movie Theater

Coolidge Corner Theatre

Streaming companies made it easier than ever to catch the latest releases on the small screen during the pandemic. But for true cinephiles, nothing beats the experience, and the curation, of local independent cinema. Thankfully, the Coolidge has steadily offered fans a virtual screening room featuring everything from foreign films to Oscar-nominated shorts, giving film buffs ample fodder for their Letterboxd accounts. We’re thrilled it’s reopened to in-person audiences, but glad we had it all along.
