Meet the Mayor: Coolidge Corner Theatre

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

Coolidge Corner Theatre
Erwin Chuk

Why did you used to be the mayor here?
Mainly because of the Box Office Babies screenings. I was bringing my infant here for quite a while. That's fallen off recently, as she's been getting a little more active. Used to be, I could bring her in a car seat and enjoy the movie for myself. Now she's more interested in discovering things for herself. It's put a damper on things.

Have you considered sedating your child with pharmaceuticals?
Yeah, I've thought about Robitussin or something, but that would be cruel. She's been good to me, so it's only right that I return the favor.

If indie films are so great, why aren't they all financed by big evil corporations?
Well, because of the bottom line. Indie films can be great, but they don't appeal to the mass audiences big evil corporations tend to get behind. For them, it's all about getting the most eyes on a picture. What we consider good is subjective. That's why there are all these hordes following Bieber and Gaga. Their fans consider that great music. To me, it's garbage. So it's all perspective.
