Coolidge, Kendall tops “The Best Of 2008” from the Boston Phoenix

The annual Boston Phoenix "The Best OF" lists have been announced!

Congratulations go out to Brookline’s Coolidge Corner Theatre, which was named "Best Art/Repertory FIlm House", and to Cambridge’s Kendall Square Landmark Theatre, named "Best First Run Movie Theater".

About the Coolidge, the paper said "Whether you’re feeling avant garde, nostalgic, or a little bit kooky, the Coolidge has something to arouse your inner culture vulture." Sounds pretty accurate to me…

Where Kendall Square was concerned, the Phoenix said it has "the ambiance of an art house and the screening capability of a multiplex", and noted that this is the third straight year Kendall Square has won the award.

The Phoenix’s "The Best" awards are voted on by the many readers of the free weekly newspaper.

Once again, congrats to the Coolidge and Kendall Square!
