Stay up for a midnight movie in Brookline

The Coolidge Corner Theatre continues its bizarre films for late-night viewers all through January.

Can’t sleep? Making your way to the Coolidge Corner Theater for a late-night screening of a weird and/or creepy movie isn’t going to help you catch any Zs, but it’ll keep you focused and place you among like-minded viewers.

Though the continuing series of freaky films is called “Coolidge After Midnite,” all of them in January’s weekend lineup actually start before the witching hour – some at 11:30, some at 11:59.

Here’s what they’ve got programmed for the month, along with dates of release and running times. Further information on each title can be found at


Jan. 1: “The Ring” (2002, 115 minutes, at 11:59)

Jan. 7: “Eyes Wide Shut” (1999, 159 minutes, at 11:30)

Jan. 8: “Blood and Black Lace” (1964, 88 minutes, at 11:59)

Jan. 14: “A Clockwork Orange” (1971, 136 minutes, at 11:30)

Jan. 14: “Cats” (2019, 110 minutes, at 11:59, in Moviehouse 2)

Jan. 15: “Orgasmo (aka Paranoia)” (1969, 95 minutes, at 11:59)

Jan. 21: “The Shining” (1980, 146 minutes, at 11:30)

Jan. 22: “Creepers (aka Phenomena)” (1985, 116 minutes, at 11:59)

Jan. 28: “The Room” (2003, 99 minutes, at 11:59)

Jan. 28: “Malignant” (2021, 111 minutes, at 11:59, in Moviehouse 2)

Jan. 29: “The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh (aka Next!)” (1971, 81 minutes, at 11:59)

The real concern here is whether or not you’ll be able to sleep after seeing some of these.
