NU Bucket List – #7
Movie at Coolidge Corner Theatre
Nestled in the heart of Brookline is one of New England’s oldest movie theaters–built in 1903 as a church and then remodeled in 1933 as an Art Deco movie palace, Coolidge Corner Theater has been showing indie and cult classic films ever since. It’s refreshingly independent and whimsically old-world, as well as generally much cleaner than your average city theater.
The Coolidge is a college kid favorite around Beantown, with old classics like the Wizard of Oz as well as live renditions of masterpieces streamed from London’s National Theater (for all you Sherlock fans, that means Benedict Cumberbatch as Hamlet *swoon*) all on the big screen!.
Right about now, they’ve got such gems as Spotlight, the thrilling tale of a Boston Globe investigative team, and Trumbo, the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo dramatically blacklisted for being a “commie.”
What better way to celebrate the end of finals than with a retro trip to the silver screen? This Friday, December 18th has Scrooged with Bill Murray playing at midnight, which sounds to us like a perfectly jolly way to *not need to study all night.* As usual, we expect some awesome pictures!
Located at 290 Harvard Street, The Coolidge is right on the Green Line C train at the Coolidge Corner stop. The number 66 bus out of Roxbury Crossing also pulls up right to the door!
