From artsy to strange, Boston’s theaters have everything to offer
By Zach Drucker, Tufts Daily
Boston has been a longtime hub for filmmakers and movie buffs alike. Though common sense would deem Hollywood the epicenter of film, Boston is a prevalent backdrop and is also host to numerous festivals and cinema-based events. Just ask Matt Damon and Ben Affleck who — since their coronation as Hollywood hotshots — have been bringing movie sets to Boston since “Good Will Hunting” (1997).
Yet, for the average moviegoer, Boston is a goldmine of unique theaters, each with its own history and legacy. Sure, Beantown has its fair share of run-of-the-mill multiplexes such as AMC Loews Boston Common, but for the selective cinema patron, the independent aficionado and the foreign flick follower, Boston is an Eden.
