With its large population of academics and intellectuals, Boston has its share of discerning moviegoers and movie houses, especially in Brookline and Cambridge. Theaters at suburban malls and in Downtown may have better screens, if less adventurous fare. The Boston Globe has daily listings in the "Living/Arts" section; the Boston Herald Friday "Scene" section and the Improper Bostonian "Movies" section list films for the week. Movies cost $9–$13. Many theaters have half-price matinees, often rescinded during the opening run of a major film.
