Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Steps away from the Davis Square T station, the Somerville Theatre opened in 1914 as a vaudeville and movie venue, transitioning into the picture business full-time during the Great Depression. The Somerville’s tradition of attracting audiences by giving away prizes like turkeys and appliances ended in the 1970s, but a crowd-pleasing, multi-purpose spirit is still intact. As well as showing new, one-off and second-run movies, the theater is also a concert venue for major acts. The Somervilles biggest annual film events are The Independent Film Festival, Widescreen Film Festival, and the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival and Sci-Fi Marathon. Don’t forget, entrance to The Museum of Bad Art—located in the theatres basement—is included with ticket purchase.
