It’s not technically a theatre, but MIT's Lecture Series Committee has been programming movies on MIT's campus since the 1950s. The weekly screenings are a mix of recent blockbusters and classic films, plus the occasional special event like a film from a visiting director or an all-night sci-fi marathon—all projected on 35mm. With its small wooden auditorium seats and dollar popcorn, the LSC provides a relaxed, sociable atmosphere and an offbeat viewing experience well worth the dirt-cheap $4 ticket. It’s one of the first movie venues to put its schedules online (in 1996), and it's the only place in the area where Björk has been spotted at the movies.
