The distinctive neon marquee of the Coolidge Corner Theatre towers over Brookline like a beacon. The Art Deco non-profit is working all the angles by juggling tons of series in addition to their regular independent and foreign programming. Science on Screen pairs a movie with a related science talk, After Midnite does cult films and horror, and the Coolidge Shorts program plays short films alongside feature presentations. The annual Coolidge Award has honored the likes of Meryl Streep and Jonathan Demme, and attracted many a big name into town. Like the Somerville and Capitol Theatres, Coolidge has added more screens to compete with multiplexes—in addition to their main 1930s theater, there are three smaller screens. But be warned: one is very small.
