Boston Movie The Friends of Eddie Coyle – on Big Screen at MFA (this weekend) & Somerville Theatre ( March 11-13)

Posted on: February 26, 2011

Thanks to a link from Paul Sherman (of Big Screen Boston fame) for letting me know that the movie The Friends of Eddie Coyle – filmed in and around Boston in the early 1970’s and starring Robert Mitchum – will be shown this weekend at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the weekend of March 11 at the Somerville Theatre (run on sentence much?!)
Friends of Eddie Coyle, Dedham SquareAs you may remember, I wrote about the local locations in Eddie Coyle a while back, and had a great response from folks who worked and lived in and around the area at the time (check out the sweet comments from the P.J. Pastry thread!)

Here are the links to the previous posts, so you can see the locations:

This is a great opportunity to see “The best movie made in Boston” according to Paul Sherman, on the big screen, with an archival print, no less.

Here are the links to both of the showings:

And a theatrical trailer so you know what you’re in for:


Enjoy this rare glimpse into Boston as seen in 1973!
