The Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, MA is run by a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to independent cinema. I've been going there throughout my 8+ years of living in Boston, and it's awesome every time. Whether it's to a screening of Wet Hot American Summer (where I won a prize 2 weeks ago by licking my elbow) or a Buffy Sing-A-Long (You know I'm a huge dork, right?), they excel in not only being a venue for unique, lesser-known films but also creating fun events for the geeky, cult fans in all of us.
This Friday and Saturday their midnight showings will be dedicated to the 1978 film Women's Prison Massacre. It's a grindhouse-style sexploitation flick that harks back to a bygone era of sleazy cinema. The print is really rare (it's shown on actual film) and I hear it's a ton of fun. The best part: It's FREE! The other best part: We're involved! Dance Party Massacre is teaming up with the Coolidge Corner Theatre both nights (How could we not with that film title?) by offering prize giveaways. Expect free stickers and postcards at least if you don't win—Just ask Mark.
So make your way down to watch a free movie, potentially get more free stuff, and basically have a fun time without spending a cent.
