Cineastes, unite

By Melissa Kaplan, Globe Correspondent, 6/3/2004

Globalization might be making our world smaller, but it's still a far walk to Tokyo for a movie. Best to kick your feet up on the seat in front of you.

Brattle Theatre 40 Brattle St., Cambridge. 617-876-6837. Good for weeklong showings of international sensations. Godzilla is still great after the sixth time.

Coolidge Corner Theatre 290 Harvard St., Brookline. 617-734-2500. Late-night kung fu on weekends is best with decaf apple tea and a bar of white chocolate.

Harvard Film Archive 24 Quincy St., Cambridge. 617-495-4700. More like a museum, but great for viewing old, rare worldly flicks that have made an impact.

Kendall Square Cinema 1 Kendall Square, Cambridge. 617-499-1996. Indie theater with highlights most other international houses don't have. You can go to see the French flick but fall back on subtitle-free documentaries.

Museum of Fine Arts, Remis Auditorium 465 Huntington St., Boston. 617-369-3306. Large venue for goods from those hard-to-reach countries. BYO Popcorn.

The Regent Theatre 7 Medford St., Arlington. 781-646-4849. It has multiple uses, but if you keep up with the listings, you'll catch a fun piece of Indian cinema.

Somerville Theatre 55 Davis Square, Somerville. 617-625-5700. Second-run haven. If you missed "The Triplets of Belleville" the first time, you can still enjoy it here in the red fuzzy seats.
