Who ya gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!

Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Sun, Oct 14, 2012

365 thigns to do in boston ghost bustersWhen I heard the Ghost Busters were going to be in town, I couldn't help but share the news with all my peeps- aka you! I'm not sure if everyone has seen this movie as much as I have, but it is definitely an all-time favorite for many people. Watch the movie live at the Coolidge Corner Theater on October 22nd. If you haven't seen the Ghost Busters, then ummm... you haven't lived yet. It is an all-time classic. I may just be a little bit obsessed with movies, but trust me, this is one to see. Three scientists discover a way to kill ghosts but their funding is cut. Soon after they start a business - killing ghosts- an evil spirit Gozer becomes a major problem. I won't tell you too much, but keep in mind that Gozer is a 12-story tall marshmellow man. Scary, I know. (I would probably just eat him... just sayin.) So take a lazy day and make a date to watch the Ghost Busters.

Take the kids to "The Jumping Monkeys" in Coolidge Corner

Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Fri, Oct 12, 2012

Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys have been quite the buzz around town lately, and lucky for Boston they will be performing live at the Coolidge Corner Theater this Sunday October 14th. Vanessa is an amazing singer-songwriter who has an impressive way of entertaining children, and the parents as well. If you are looking for something to do with the kids this weekend (without boring yourself to death) I highly recommend checking out her show.

As Boston Children's Music puts it, "Vanessa's shows are perfect. It's hard to explain and I can't quite put my finger on what it is they do differently, but whatever it is, it really gets the kids (and parents) excited!...She has some sort of magical energy that makes all of her shows super fun..."

So there ya have it. Vanessa and her band are going to jam out this Sunday. Don't be the only no-show!

#286 THE MUPPET MOVIE - Coolidge Corner-Sunday

Posted by Tara Peterson on Sat, Feb 05, 2011

muppetsOh Kermit, how I love thee...oh wait that is besides the point. Head to Coolidge Corner Theater Sunday at 10:30am to watch the Muppet Movie!! YEAH! :)


They're irreverent, irrepressible, and downright irresistible. They're the Muppets! -- starring in their first full-length movie. See how their meteoric rise to fame and fortune began: with a rainbow, a song . . . and a Frog. After a fateful meeting with a big-time talent agent, Kermit the Frog heads for Hollywood dreaming of showbiz. Along the way, Fozzie Bear, the Great Gonzo, and the dazzling Miss Piggy join him in hopes of becoming film stars too. But all bets are off when Kermit falls into the clutches of Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), a fast-food mogul seeking to promote his French-fried frog-leg franchise! Featuring Oscar-nominated music and side-splitting appearances by some of the biggest names on the silver screen -- including Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Orson Welles, and more!
Recommended for ages 5+.
