    This is probably one of the few great films of the Seventies. It's the tale of three Pennsylvanian steelworkers, their life at work, at play (deer-hunting), at war (as volunteers in Vietnam). Running against the grain of liberal guilt and substitu...

    Not only expert homage for the fans but a first-rate, energized piece of mega-Hollywood adventure, the hugely anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens stirs more to life than just the Force. The rollicking, space-opera spirit of George Lucas’s ori...

    Room is a fitting title for director Lenny Abrahamson’s potent and sensitive film about two characters who spend precious years of their lives trapped in one. But Room is also cruel shorthand for a story about two characters who aren’t afforded an...

    After the playful, urban and contemporary vibe of Birdman, this bleak 1820s-set Western sees Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu return to the darker worldview of his earlier films like Babel and 21 Grams. Based on a 2002 Michael Punke n...

    "This is Boston," says Stanley Tucci’s seen-it-all victims’ lawyer to a reporter in Spotlight, echoing that famous last line from Chinatown: "Forget it, Jake—it’s Chinatown." But forgetting isn’t an option sometimes. Spotlight calmly and powerfull...

This is the perfect place to stop in and see a movie by yourself or on a date. The beer selection is great at the bar and the best part is, you don't even have to see a film to hang out. The bar (and concession stand) is open to moviegoers and the public alike. If you're a film buff you can try their trivia nights—they don't disappoint.

I live down the street from the Logan Theatre, and it's a fabulous thing to have nearby. Matinees go for $6.50, makes for a perfect way to waste away your hungover Sunday at the cinema. There's also a bar with a solid variety of drinks, so you don't even have to be sober for the flick.

I love Logan Theatre. This throwback movie theater has everything you want in an old venue, except it's also clean, inviting and in working order! I love all the old movie posters and art on the walls. You can order drinks at the bar before the feature film too. I'd also recommend the theater's movie trivia night, Tuesdays at 8pm. It gets packed early, but it's so much fun. The host is great, the questions are tricky, and everyone has a good time. Great crowd! Oh, and there's typically an old film screening in the background during trivia too. So much fun!
