Located in the basement of Harvard University’s landmark Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, the Harvard Film Archive shows a wide variety of classic, foreign, independent, and (occasionally) silent films that you’ll never see anywhere else in the Boston area.
While the Archive’s screening room is of no special architectural distinction, the Carpenter Center itself is the only North American building designed by the famed French architect Le Corbusier.

Some photos of the Carpenter Center and the Harvard Film Archive screening room.

According to their web site, the Harvard Film Archive showed their first film on March 16, 1979: Ernst Lubitsch’s silent Lady Windermere’s Fan.
