The Coolidge Corner Theatre is taking very seriously Daniel Day-Lewis’s claim that “Phantom Thread” is his final film.
The Brookline theater is one of just a few venues in the country that’s hosting a 70mm sneak preview Dec. 30, and the Coolidge’s run of director Paul Thomas Anderson’s new movie will be the only 70mm presentation in the Boston area.
You’ll recall that a rep for Day-Lewis, a three-time Oscar winner, announced last summer that he planned to retire.
“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor,” the statement read. “He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”
In addition to the 70mm presentation of “Phantom Thread” — the movie officially opens Jan. 12 — the Coolidge is giving Day-Lewis a splendid send-off by featuring five films from his career in the coming weeks. Titled “I’m Finished! A Celebration of Daniel Day-Lewis,” the series will include “My Beautiful Laundrette,” “My Left Foot,” “Last of the Mohicans,” “There Will Be Blood,” and “Lincoln.”
