Coolidge Corner Theatre, Movie theaters, Boston

The distinctive neon marquee of the Coolidge Corner Theatre—a cultural and community institution—towers over Brookline's liveliest neighborhood like a beacon. The Art Deco theatre offers one of New England's strongest programs of independent and foreign films, shown across multiple screens of varying sizes. Special events run the gamut from book readings to midnight showings of cult and horror films. The Coolidge has been in operation as an independent movie theater since 1933, but in 1989 it became a nonprofit organization preserving and advancing the cinema arts.

    The specific New York City of 1991—somehow harsher and more wintry, and still, a place of cozy antiquarian bookstores and down-on-their-luck dreamers in overcoats—comes to life in Can You Ever Forgive Me?, based on an actual literary misadventure....

    Calling the new A Star Is Born a “valentine” from its star, Lady Gaga, to her fans sounds a bit coy and delicate, so let’s call it what it really is: a hot French kiss (with full-on tongue), filled with passion, tears and a staggering amount of ...

    As an actor, Paul Dano is always up for the odd, the disconcerting, the complicated. Drink in his highlights reel: Little Miss Sunshine (confused adolescent), There Will Be Blood (conflicted preacher), 12 Years a Slave (sadistic tyrant), Love & Me...

    In celebrating the teenage California skate rats he idolized as a kid, Jonah Hill gets many things right in Mid90s, especially if his goal is to make a sweetly stoned wisp of a movie. The actors—notably pint-sized lead Sunny Suljic, already capabl...
