    I love living here. Not only did Boston finally get a couple really good mainstream theaters a couple years ago, but the opportunities to see non-mainstream movies keep expanding. For now, the guys who program the Coolidge are starting a new program - "Allston Cinema Underground", with the first program being "Ass Kicking Asian Summer". Saturday Matinees (well, 4pm shows) have already started; Friday/Saturday evening features and Wednesday evening features start in June.

    Of course, most papers don't have listings for the Allston Cinema, so I missed Jet Li in Shaolin Temple 3: North And South Shaolin last week. I didn't even realize it was still open; I believe it used to be a Showcase property which got knocked down to second-run when the nice places started opening up (it might be in Fenway's exclusivity zone), then got sold off. Last I heard, it was running Bollywood movies. I've gone past it a few times and, I'll admit, it's probably at the bottom of the list where Boston-area theaters are concerned. But, where else are you going to see this stuff on the big screen with a crowd?
