Brookline will be hosting a memorial and recognition ceremony Thursday in response to the Boston Marathon bombings last Monday and subsequent violence last week.

The ceremony will be held at the Coolidge Corner Theatre at 290 Harvard Street on Thursday, April 25, and will memorialize the victims and recognize police, first responders and other volunteers from Brookline who helped deal with the tragedy, said Brookline Town Administrator Mel Kleckner.

The ceremony will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will include government officials, and representatives from Brookline schools and faith-based institutions.

Kleckner said the program is still being finalized for the ceremony, but all are welcome to attend.

The BrooklineHub.com annual Youth Awards ceremony that had been scheduled for 7 p.m. at the theatre Thursday has been rescheduled to 5 p.m.
