Capitol Theatre

Only a few minutes on the 77 bus from Harvard Square is the scrappy, second-run Capitol Theater. An Art Deco mural and gold-painted columns point to its past life as a luxurious movie palace back in the 1920s and '30s; but these days the Capitol is more of a cheap date, early-bird-special kind of establishment. The space's six screens are now stocked with a variety of second-run films, including kids' movies. With $6 weekday matinees, baby-friendly Mondays and opera screening events, the audience net is cast wide. You'll find the standard assortment of popcorn and snacks, plus ice cream at the attached Capitol Creamery. And thanks to its suburban locale, no ticket is over $9.
