This was one of the coolest places Ive been in Boston so far. I saw the movie, “You Were Never Really Here.” The decor is amazing! My favorite was the old water fountain within the actual theater. This theater shows movies that are not so...More

Three theaters in this gorgeous building in the middle of Brookline MA. They show everything from independent films, Oscar nominated and everything in between. Great people, decent snacks and alcohol served. One of my all time favorite cinemas.

I've seen many great films here, of various types. I don't buy the snacks, and sometimes it's not particularly impressive seating. I have also watched special screenings of newly-released or not-yet-released films. If you're a filmmaker, this site is really quite adequate for your screening...More

Just love this theater! Comfortable seats, reasonable ticket prices, buy in advance option. Small place, with 3 screens of very different sizes (phone to see where your movie is showing if you care). Cute old-timey ads and announcements. Beer and wine in the lobby. Eclectic...More
