Meet the Mayor: Kendall Square Cinema

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.  

Kendall Square Cinema
Penny Camberville

Ever get lost trying to find the Kendall?
Well, the first time I tried to find it, 10 years ago, I took the T and got off at the Kendall T station, and it was nowhere near. Now I don't have any problems. It's only a 10-minute walk from the T station, but driving is a lot easier. Whenever I walk around there, there's always a person who asks me where the theater is. I point them in the right direction.

Why pay to see movies in a theater when you can download them illegally for free?
I'm not a fan of watching movies on TVs or monitors. I like seeing them on the big screen. It's a whole experience. Everything's much bigger. The sound is always better. The darkness, the big room.

Bigness and darkness? That sounds terrifying.
Yeah, maybe it's a little bit adventurous, but I like it.

If you had an infinite budget to make your own movie, what would it be about?
Something like a Russian novel - wicked long, lots of characters, lots of plots, very sad things going on, and in the end, everybody dies. [Chuckles]
