Kendall has been my favorite arthouse cinema in the greater Boston area for years! It is now even better with its newly installed seats (recline enough to make viewing a more comfortable experience). Kendall also provides the best cinema-going experience with its on-site parking ($3...More

We viewed a film here recently for the first time. The seats are very comfortable, but in our theater they were tilted on a decline, which was uncomfortable, so it was important to recline the seat. Lots of legroom. There is a large covered parking...More

If arthouse cinemas are your thing, this is an essential stop. If you're more a stadium seating, multi-plex type, it's probably not your dream movie house. I love foreign and more interesting cinematic fare, so overlooked the slightly dated decor and older seats (though perfectly...More

When you want a movie with an original idea (not the 47th remake of Batman) that may cause you to think and reflect a bit--this is the place. Foreign films, documentaries and showcasing of local talent is what they do best. You could show up...More

Saw a foreign film here, seating was fine, theater was packed, which I like, because it shows wide support. Popcorn was hot BUT, the theater loses a star here because they put the popcorn in a very noisy bag -- not a cardboard bin. I...More

I love going to the Kendall Square Cinema to see those independent and art house movies that you can't get elsewhere. They always have a great selection. The theaters are small as well as the screens, but the seats are nice and the sound system...More

Good place for indie movies. They validate parking which covers most of the cost (we paid $3). Good eclectic selection of movies.

Came here to see a select locations movie. The theatre is well maintained and conveniently located near the parking garage. The theatre validates the parking and it costs us about $4.00...good deal! Seating is nice, place is clean. Would definitely come here again. Movies are...More

The choice of movies at this cinema is great for devotees of independent films . They always have the latest releases and each film is shown in a comfortable viewing room with stadium seating and plush seats. The parking garage is adjacent to the cinema...More

I like how this cinema had edamame, which was a sweet surprise. I enjoyed a cinema that was more personal and intimate while watching my movie. Great little spot.
