    Classic Film Series and Midnight Specials at Somerville Theatre

    Somerville, MA – The historic Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, one of the nation’s longest continually operating movie theaters, has announced its summer line up of Classics and Midnight Specials. Each of these movies will play on the Somerville’s big screen, in the grandeur of the theatre’s beautifully restored main auditorium.

Few realize that the booth in the main theatre is one of the most sophisticated projection facilities in New England, and here the theater presents a summer of films to take advantage of this position.

    See a classic film in a classic setting!

    June 19-20 Captains Courageous

    DRIVE-IN SUPER MONSTER-RAMA 2011 at the Riverside Drive-In


    Now in our 5th Annual Year! The ultimate trip back in time to the grand old days of drive-in cinema is back! DRIVE-IN SUPER MONSTER-RAMA is two nights of classic horror and science fiction 35mm prints (including some new prints, and several in Technicolor and Scope) presented at an authentic, hospitable drive-in movie theater. There will be two big shows on two consecutive nights which will start at dusk and go on until really late into the night! This is the fifth year in a row that we are hosting such an event, so we encourage all East Coast (or wherever you are!) drive-in movie fanatics to attend and experience something you’ll never forget! What could be better than a weekend getaway topped off with two nights of classic monster movies on the big outdoor screen?

    We realize that everything is so expensive these days, but admission is (still) only $10 a person each night! Plus, children 12 and under are free with parent or adult guardian (parental guidance is of course suggested, but this is in case you want to put the little tykes to sleep in the backseat instead of hiring a babysitter). How can you beat that? The Riverside’s concession stand is loaded with reasonably priced goodies that patrons continue to rave about, including hot foods, hot and cold drinks, candy, popcorn and much, much more! Their concession stand always gets compliments, and it’s one of the things that keeps fans of this event wanting to come back for more.
