  • Awesome 50 seat screening room for birthday parties.
  • Best movie theatre popcorn (with real butter) in the metro Boston area.
  • Bonus points if you know the names of both styles of Roman columns in the big theater, and which is which.
  • Great local theatre to watch movies at. I love their popcorn and that you can get alcohol here.
  • Now serving beer and wine!
  • Great old movie house with first run feature movies at discounted prices and the ice cream is fabulous!
  • Owned by the same folks as The Somerville. The Capitol's granite columns and refurbished auditorium make it worth the drive.

  • Great old-school theater vibe, with fun series like movies for moms with infants on weekdays and classic movie showings.
  • First run movies, $6 matinees before 6pm, really cool theaters. Get there early for your show and grab a cold draft beer!
  • Great theatre. Throw back movies + beer + not the loudest theatre ever FTW.
  • Definitely grab a beer while you're watching a movie. Then get ice cream at their ice cream shop!
  • What would I recommend here? Movies and ice cream. Also beer and wine is a nice grown up touch.
