About the Coolidge

Widely regarded as one of New England’s most beloved cultural landmarks, the Coolidge Corner Theatre is one of the nation’s most prominent independently operated movie theatres, run by the not-for-profit Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation.

Since 1933, audiences in the greater Boston area have relied on the Coolidge for the best of contemporary art house and independent film. The Coolidge also presents the prestigious annual Coolidge Award; high-definition broadcasts from London's National Theatre and Europe's Grand Operas; Big Screen Classics; Midnite cult films and sing-alongs; weekend kids' variety shows; and sneak previews and discussion of upcoming films as part of Talk Cinema. In 2008, the Coolidge was selected among distinguished arts organizations to be awarded significant funding from the Cultural Facilities Fund, a program administered by MassDevelopment and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The Coolidge has won numerous awards and recognitions for creative and innovative programming.


The Coolidge Corner Theatre is fully accessible and is located at 290 Harvard Street in the heart of Coolidge Corner, Brookline, Massachusetts.

Box Office Hours

Tickets are available online 24 hours a day. To avoid long lines at the box office, we recommend that you take advantage of our print-at-home ticket option.

The theatre box office opens a half hour prior to the first show of the day and closes a half hour after the last show.


All four film and video exhibition areas are accessible by elevators.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing

All theaters have assisted listening broadcast equipment. In the larger theaters for individuals with T-coil systems, you can pick up a wireless loop necklace system at the box office. In the Video Screening Room and GoldScreen, a wireless loop is installed around the perimeter of the room. In these rooms, just flip the T-coil switch. If you want amplified stereo listening, you can ask the Box Office for a receiver and headphones. You can then adjust the volume in each theater to your personal need.

We gratefully acknowledge our support for the past twenty years by The Massachusetts Cultural Council, which provides us annually with Operational Support.
