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 last time Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz came together for a Spanish story conceived and shot by a foreign director, it was for Woody Allen’s light, frothy Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Now they’re back at it, minus the campy sexual fireworks, fo...
