Pulpy Mobsters Invade the Coolidge
Venerable moviehouse revives a cult favorite on the big screen
Watching favorite movies over and over in your living room can get dull. Reciting lines alone gets old quickly — and besides, movie-watching is meant to be a collective experience.
Enter the Coolidge Corner Theatre, in Brookline, which brings classics to life as they were meant to be seen: on the silver screen, in their glory.
Last year, patrons of the theater voted for their favorite movies, as the Coolidge celebrates its 75th anniversary. The winners from each decade, classics all, have been screened each month, culminating on July 13 with The Departed.
Tonight, June 8, at 7 p.m., Quentin Tarantino’s violent masterpiece Pulp Fiction returns, a great opportunity to experience the many-layered, dark comedy in its original context — or for the first time.
So get off that couch — Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta say so.
The Coolidge Corner Theatre is at 290 Harvard St., Brookline; get off at the Coolidge Corner stop on the Green Line. Tickets are available for $9 on the theater’s Web site or at the box office.
