I like to see less known movies. The Kendal is great but the Coolidge has coffee and is old school and the best and my butt is comfy in the old seats. No they dont go to your head nor recline but they are great none the less.Since none of my friends have interest in these types of flicks, I often end up going solo and it isn't weird at all. Usually there are others solo so it's definitely cool.
Many other things to do in that neighborhood also. Warning: ;many movies definitely sell out so it is worthwhile to but tix through the web to ensure you get in. Or to go early. If you go early don't worry about passing time. Everyone working here is friendly. This place has a different vibe than other theaters and is a great spot! Try it out! I have also seen music and movie combined performances with an after talk, those sell out but are fantastic!
