The Somerville Theatre is a bit run-down but still quite charming. It is located conveniently across from the Alewife T stop in Somerville Square. I recently saw Sufjan Stevens perform there and it was a great choice for a venue. The tickets were not expensive and the seats were great. I would definitely see a band play there again if I could sit near the stage. I would not say the same for the balcony area though.

PROS: Lower level seating
CONS: Balcony area

This movie theatre screens Indian movies on most weekends. It is difficult to find the location of this theatre unless you are familiar with Somerville. Parking is paid and little bit away from the theatre. Please allow some time for finding parking.

PROS: One of the theatres for indian movies
CONS: PARKING is far

This movie theatre shows fun classics in addition to current movies. You can catch an art film or a foreign film here. They also play funny cult movies. The price is good and it's in Davis Square, a great area.

Somerville theater shows the popular movies that have left the major theaters and offers to you them at a fraction of the price. The theater is nicely decorated, however, does not have stadium seating, but the price is worth it! The somerville theater also holds live concerts in their largest theater.

The Somerville Theater is an independent movie theater in Somerville's Davis Square. It shows second run movies at a fraction of the cost of going to a first movie. But even more exciting is the fact that the theater also serves as a performance venue for indie bands and folk musicians.

The Somerville theater is nice primarily because it is cheap. Regular admission tickets are $6.50 for adults, anytime, and matinees are even less. Friendly employees. However the popcorn/butter lacked flavor, and some of the theater rooms are extremely small (like seating 50 people) which means you are always going to be sitting close to the screen. Also when I was there recently, for about 15 minutes of the movie, there was a rhythmic static sound that kept happening. Basically you get what you pay for.

Second run movie theater, a bit run-down but vibrant and lively. Shows nearly everything eventually. Screens varying in size and seating configurations do as well. There is a main screen where the most popular film isshown. The theater maintains an active music and live performance schedule. It is one of the sites of the Boston FIlm Festival.

PROS: Price and variety are good; location is excellent
CONS: Snack bar is average

The Somerville Theatre is just the kind of theatre you would want in a college are like Davis Square. The movies are cheap ($6.00) and it often plays independent and foreign films that the megaplexes don't. It's also a great place to see a concert.
