"The mission of the nonprofit Coolidge Corner Theatre is to entertain, inform, and engage — building a vital community through film culture"

About Us

The Coolidge Corner Theatre is New England's most successful independent, nonprofit cinema. Built as a church in 1906, it was redesigned as an Art Deco movie palace in 1933 and has never closed its doors to the public since then. Located in the heart of Brookline, Massachusetts, it was the community's first movie theater and now, a non-profit foundation since 1989, it celebrates the experience of cinema by presenting the finest international, documentary, animated, and independent film selections and series. From the sponsoring of china giveaways during the Depression to the prestigious Coolidge Award events inaugurated in 2004 honoring groundbreaking international artists from the world of film, the Coolidge Corner Theatre has played a unique and indelible role in the development and social history of the town of Brookline. The many changes at the Coolidge in recent years have greatly altered the perception of the Theatre in the eyes of the public. The Coolidge has, in fact, experienced nothing short of a renaissance, transforming itself from a down-at-heel but beloved experimental arts venue to a stable, prosperous, and highly valued institution in the community. Coolidge programming includes Kids Variety Shows, films for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing, Midnite Movies, an Opera Series, Science on Screen, and Senior Matinees. More new programs continue to be introduced and during the COVID-19 pandemic, the theater has offered online rentals for the community to stream in their homes.
