Coolidge Corner Theatre
Branding / Identity / Print / Posters / Reports
Widely regarded as one of New England’s most beloved cultural landmarks, the Coolidge Corner Theatre is one of the nation’s most prominent independently operated movie theaters, known for curating the best in contemporary, art house, and independent films. Built as a church in 1906, it was redesigned as an art deco movie palace in 1933 and has welcomed the public ever since. Stoltze’s involvement with this valued institution began in 2004 when we updated the theater’s identity and collateral system, supporting their mission “to entertain, enlighten, and engage—building community through film culture.”

The honoree constellation includes Meryl Streep, Zhang Yimou, Viggo Mortensen, Jane Fonda, Jonathan Demme, Vittorio Storaro, Thelma Schoonmaker, the Quay Brothers, and most recently Werner Herzog. Stoltze designed the identity for the award and continues to design the event materials—including posters, programs, and T-shirts.
