All reviews movie theater non profit coolidge corner art deco independent films big screen beer and wine movie selection comfortable seating real butter special screenings love this place old timey live entertainment red velvet offer free reclining seats
I have been going to this cinema for over 30 years. They show a good display of independent movies. They have many special events - we saw Liv Ulman discuss an Ingmar Bergman film “Autumn Sonata”. Very, very interesting
This theater is hands down my favorite place in Brookline. I have gone to so many amazing shows here over the last 3 years I really ought to buy the introductory membership since it's so conveniently priced. This theater is a gem and I love...More
CCT looks and feels its age--it opened in 1933! But if you can do without reclining seats, it is worth your movie $$: great homemade popcorn with real butter, baked goods and artisan chocolates, ice cream & fancy popsicles, beer and wine, friendly staff with...More
It's like time travel; a real pre-war (II) movie experience. Popcorn just tastes better in that place. Don't go there to watch Terminator XXI, rather take in the latest indie film or a re-run of Casablanca. Beer and wine is available in the lobby.
This is a nice small cinema with a good selection of movies. Prices are fair! However, a couple of not so good points.. very difficult to get someone with a wheelchair or other walking aid in and seated comfortably. Seats are very narrow and not...More
I really like the movie selection. But it’s hard to call this heater handicapped accessible. There seem to be two or three steps everywhere. No handicapped stall on the second floor. And no handicapped rows in the theater, other than the front row. And the...More
Go back in time when movies were shown on the "big Screen". Wonderful movies in a charming setting. Popcorn with REAL butter. Soda with cane sugar. A friendly staff. What more do you need?? It is our "go to" place for a movie night.
If you are tall and get uncomfortable with your legs scrunched up together for two hours, DON'T bother seeing a film here!
If you are otherwise suited, it's a great set of movie theaters with good indie and foreign films shown!
This is a wonderful 1930’s film house with nominally comfy seats, good sound, an enlightened refreshment stand (think adult beverages) and the willingness to show films that won’t be shown in the burbs at the mega screen places. Love this place!

Jonny Depp was there last night with other lead actors for the world premier of his new film, "Black Mass". That was probably one of the few times men wore ties and women wore evening dresses to the CC. Other than that... More
Jonny Depp was there last night with other lead actors for the world premier of his new film, "Black Mass". That was probably one of the few times men wore ties and women wore evening dresses to the CC. Other than that, there is no dress code, but shoes and reasonable upper and lower body clothing that your Mother would approve of.
