CinemaSmith in Coolidge Corner is closing

The CinemaSmith, which is sort of an attachment to the Brookline Booksmith in Brookline’s Coolidge Corner, and located in the basement of the Brookline Booksmith, will be closing shortly. Many movies are on sale there.

When I asked the young woman working behind the counter at Brookline Booksmith why CinemaSmith was closing, she replied that Netflix and lots of DVD’s, on the long run, were causing CinemaSmith to make little to no money, so they decided it wasn’t worth it to stay in business any longer. Even though CinemaSmith isn’t a movie theatre, and though I very seldom used it, it was a little unsettling to learn of its closing.

Also worth noting: CinemaSmith is across the street from Brookline’s lovely Coolidge Corner Theatre.

Yup—that I know, since I go to the Brookline Booksmith, which CinemaSmith is/was attached to.
