This is incredibly exciting news, for Boston and for all small independent movie theaters, as this was not the case for many. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, it hit theaters hard.
When I was in my 20’s, I lived in South Boston and would often find myself in Harvard Square with friends at the marvelous little theater that just felt so cozy, would play classic and new films and was just…the best. I took myself a couple of times, as my own date, too. The smaller theater, the sense of walking into history, into community, into a local spot, reminded me of being a little girl in Hollywood. These memories are the best, and every time I’m back in Boston, I try to go. In fact, anytime I travel, I keep an eye out for the local independent theaters, to get the feeling of being home away from home.
