Throughout the year, the Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation hosts ticketed fundraising events with proceeds benefiting the continued preservation and operations of the Coolidge.

If you don't see an event listed below, be sure to check back, new events are added on an ongoing basis.



Trivia Night

Can you identify a particular film from its soundtrack or dialogue? Is your brain brimming with film quotes and Oscar factoids? Or do you just love the Coolidge and want to help us continue to deliver thought-provoking, curated programming for all members of the community? If the answer is "yes" to any of the above, please join us for a fun-filled evening of virtual film trivia.

That's right: our beloved Film Trivia Night Fundraiser is back with a special virtual edition! All proceeds benefit the nonprofit Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation. As many of you know, our doors have been closed since mid-March, so we are hoping we can count on your support and participation in this fun evening.

Teams of up to eight contestants will compete, and we will have some fun prizes for the winning team. A limited number of individual tickets starting at $35 are also available, come with a team or we can assign you to one!

How does it work?

All participants will receive a Zoom meeting link via email as part of your sponsorship or ticket registrations. You can join using your computer, tablet, or smartphone device. For best experience, we recommend using your computer device. The Zoom room will open starting at 7:30pm - so feel free to join then to ensure your device is configured and working. We will then get players into their teams using breakout rooms. During the event, you will play as a team consisting of yourself, everyone in your household, and/or as a remote team with other players. Teams will have a chance to choose their team captain, who will be responsible for submitting answers at the end of each round via a game URL provided by the host.

How many people can participate in each team?

Teams of up to eight contestants will participate in the CCT Virtual Film Trivia Night Fundraiser. You are welcome to form your own team, or we can assign you to a team. The Coolidge will reach out to you closer to the event to confirm your team preferences. 

How long is the event?

We anticipate that the event will take 90 minutes, maximum.
