BROOKLINE, MA — After ten successful years, the Executive Director of the Coolidge Corner Theatre is leaving. He led the charge in revitalizing the theatre so replacing him is a top priority.

Executive Director Joe Zina is leaving the Coolidge Corner Theatre at the end of the year, and a new chapter in one of the few remaining Art Deco moviegoing jewels will begin.

From the press release: “After an incredibly active and prolific 10-year career as the Executive Director of the Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation, Joe Zina will be stepping down from his position at the end of the year. Zina, who was previously on the Board of Directors at the theater and took the position of Executive Director in 1998, will be moving on to pursue personal artistic projects including consulting with community cultural centers on dance and film.

So sorry to read/hear of Joe Zina’s departure. He definitely was a pillar of the Coolidge Theatre. Here’s hoping that they find an executive who did as great a job as he did, and that it remains the kind of theatre that it presently is.
