With the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, local independent movie theaters continue to announce reopening plans. The latest is the Capitol Theatre, in Arlington. Closed since March 2020, it resumes screening with “A Quiet Place Part II,” “Cruella,” and “Nomadland.” “We love our community, appreciate its support, and can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the movies,” said the theater’s manager, Jamie Mattchen, in a statement.
The Capitol’s owner, Frame One Theatres, also owns the Somerville Theatre, in Davis Square. The Somerville, which frequently hosts musical concerts in its main auditorium, has been undergoing renovations and should be reopening later this summer.
The Dedham Community Theatre reopened last month. The Coolidge Corner Theatre, in Brookline, reopened on May 13. The Brattle Theatre, in Cambridge, plans to reopen to the general public on July 2, with a limited reopening for Brattle members in June. The West Newton Cinema closed for only four months last year. It reopened last July.
