If you’ve seen movies like “The Artist” or “Hugo,” you’ve fallen in love with what it must have been like to go to the movies in the 1930s. With lines down the street, friends and family would gather together and watch films as a grand event. The ambiance of the theaters back then were much different than they are today with red curtains draped over the screen and a marquee outside.
The Coolidge Corner Theatre captures what it must have been like to go to the movies when they were first introduced! With an old-fashioned sign hanging overhead and the marquee displaying films now showing, you really get to view movies as if you’ve gone back in time.
The building was originally built as a church in 1906 before it was redesigned in 1933 as an Art Deco movie palace. It was the first ever movie theater constructed in the area and it remains today as one of Brookline’s biggest attractions. Showing movies that you wouldn’t typically find in a big blockbuster cinema, you can unwind and enjoy the movies in their truest form.
They serve a wide selection of candy and beverages and they even have a humble selection of beers and wines for those of you over 21! Come stay with us at our Brookline bed and breakfast and spend an evening at the Coolidge watching movies like you’ve stepped back in time!
