How Do I Get There? Going to the Movies
by Tom Honsinger, Dean of Students Marketing and Strategic Communications Assistant
So you want to watch a movie but you aren’t sure where to go? It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to pick a place for a night out with a special someone, a group of friends or for some solo movie watching; there are a couple theaters around Boston to choose from.
The Regal Fenway stadium is located in the Landmark Center, a few minutes’ walk past South Campus. This is perfect if you want to go to a movie and walk home after. So when you’re looking for a theater to watch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 on opening night, Regal Fenway is a great choice.
AMC Lowes is right on the Boston Common – just take the Green Line inbound to the Boylston stop. I normally go to this theater if I want to get further away from campus or want to go out to dinner before a movie.
The Coolidge Corner Theatre shows art house and independent films. Only a short walk from campus, the Coolidge is perfect if you want to stay close to BU and see something not shown in larger theatres. The theatre has special events like horror movie marathons around Halloween and cult film showings after midnight, so check out their website for more info.

The Kendall Square Cinema is located in Cambridge and shows independent films, foreign language cinema, classics and documentaries. If you’re looking to venture over to the other side of the Charles, the Kendall Square Cinema is a great place to check out; just take a bus, the CT2 is the fastest, or take the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop.
