Somerville Theatre

Cinema in Cambridge

This classic neighborhood movie house dates from 1914 and features plenty of well-preserved gilding and pastel murals of muses. On offer are first- and second-run Hollywood hits, live performances by chamber orchestras and world musicians, and the Independent Film Festival of Boston screenings. The main theater is the biggest, best and oldest, and has the added treat of a balcony.

This gem is in Davis Sq, just a hop and a skip north from Cambridge.
