Somerville, MA – The historic Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, one of the nation’s longest continually operating movie theaters, has announced its summer line up of Classics and Midnight Specials. Each of these movies will play on the Somerville’s big screen, in the grandeur of the theatre’s beautifully restored main auditorium. Many of the titles will be archival prints, as the theatre’s main booth was revamped in 2009 to handle the most precious of 35mm and 70mm film prints. Few realize that the booth in the main theatre is one of the most sophisticated projection facilities in New England, and here the theater presents a summer of films to take advantage of this position.

How Cooool! There are some neat classics there. The July 14-15 TBA, however, drives me a little batty.
