Coolidge Corner has opening in top job

The Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation has announced a new interim executive director after Denise Kasell resigned from the post after five years. Kasell, who is returning to New York to be closer to her family, will be replaced by Katherine Tallman, a longtime member of the foundation’s board of directors, while a search for a new executive director is conducted, the nonprofit organization said. During her tenure, Kasell helped develop and expand programs at the historic movie theater, including the Science on the Screen series, social media and communication strategies, a redesign of the theater’s website, and the addition of high definition digital projection, the foundation said.
