Coolidge Corner Theater

Parking
Nearby metered public parking is available behind the theatre (on Center St. one block from Harvard St.) and along Beacon Street. Meters are free after 6:00pm and on Sundays and holidays. Please note that the lots tend to fill up on weekends or during large events, so please plan a little extra time to find space. We strongly reccomend public transit for events and films you anticipate will be very busy! Additional Parking at an hourly rate is available across Beacon and Centre Streets at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel garage on Webster St.

Detailed Driving Directions

From Mass Pike, 90: Take exit 18 Allston/Brighton. As you exit tolls, stay to left for Allston exit and merge with Cambridge St. Follow until you reach Harvard Ave on your left, after the overpass turn left at the "Sports Depot" sign. Take the left onto Harvard Ave and follow through Allston and across Commonwealth Ave, continuing for about 1.5 miles. Just before reaching the major intersection of Harvard and Beacon St, you will notice our giant theatre marquee on your right.

From Interstate 93: Take the Storrow Drive exit and follow to Storrow Drive (this navigation changes periodically because of Big Dig construction, so watch for the signs). Take Storrow Drive to the Kenmore Square exit. As the exit splits, stay in the right hand lane. Take the first right onto Beacon St. Follow Beacon St through Kenmore Square (past the legendary Citgo sign), staying in the center lane. After you cross the overpass, keep going straight ahead, following the trolley tracks along Beacon St until you reach the intersection of Beacon and Harvard St, landmarked by a large Tudor style building with a clocktower (and a Walgreens) on the corner. You'll see us one half block up Harvard, but continue on Beacon to Center St and turn right to access our parking lot behind the building.

From Route 9: Route 9 inbound to the Brookline Village/Harvard St intersection. The Brookline fire station is on your right. Go through the intersection and take a right immediately after the fire station, and loop around the back. You can now turn right and cross back over Route 9 onto Harvard St. Follow Harvard St through Brookline Village, about one mile to Beacon St. Cross Beacon St and you will immediately see our marquee on your left. Parking is along Beacon, or go around the block and enter the lot behind our building on Center St

William Gibson's Twitter feed - GreatDismal

William Gibson is now a keen user of Twitter, rather than his now seemingly abandoned blog, so that is now the most likely place to find the latest news about his writing, or travels etc.

It is also the place to spot his occaisinal requests to his fans, for help with research on specific background details, some of which may, or may not, end up in the finished novel Zero History which he is currently working on.
