Converted in 1933 as an Art Deco style movie house from a 1906-built Universalist church in the Boston suburb of Brookline, the Coolidge Corner Theatre has been showing movies for over seventy years.
New management shifted the Coolidge Corner’s schedule from first run films in 1977 as the theater became a showcase for art house and foreign films.
In an effort to increase profits, the balcony was closed off and converted into a second screen. Despite the renovation, the theater could no longer turn an adequate profit and was put up for sale and nearly demolished.
In 1989, the Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation bought the theater and now houses a steady stream of art house, second run films and classic movies. A 45-seat video screening room was added in 2000. One more small video screening room has since been added bringing the total screen count to four.
The Coolidge Corner Theatre is the only currently operating Art Deco style theater in the Boston area.
