Our 2nd longest-running chapter, the Boston Cinema Club (originally called the Key Sunday Cinema Club) has operated for 31 seasons. The very first screening was of LOVE AND DEATH ON LONG ISLAND in February 1998 at the Kendall Square Cinemas. We met at the Coolidge Corner Theatre for a year (1999-2000), but today we meet for two seasons out of the year (winter/spring and fall) at the West Newton Cinemas for stimulating sneak previews and discussions moderated by Linda Dittmar or Brittain Smith. Join today to become part of Boston’s rich film history!
