You don't have to go far to visit this outstanding cinema.
For this week's poll, Belmont Patch asked readers an entertainment question: "Where is the best place to see an independent film?" And the majority of voters knows that you can't beat the Belmont Studio Cinema when the Belmont World Film Festival is underway. Movies from around the world and from right here that evoke the greatness of the "small" – small only in the cost of the production, not their importance – films that are shown in Belmont's own movie theater. Next in preference as a place to see indies is Belmont's sister cinema, the West Newton Cinema in nearby Newton. Best of Patch Readers' Choice 2012 is going on summer hiatus; this will be the last poll contest for a while. We plan to be back in the fall with more contests that …

Studio Cinema owner taking over Angelato to open an all-day breakfast/burrito cafe.
If all goes to James Bramante's plans, moviegoers at Belmont's Studio Cinema will be take home a burrito after viewing the latest western.

"It makes a lot of operational sense that we run this," said Bramante Tuesday, less than a day after the ZBA heard the appeal for a special permit to bring what is called a "fast food" operation at 374 Trapelo Rd. in Belmont's Central Square. "There is a lot of traffic coming and going in the area which makes it very …

Belmont Savings along with elementary school PTO/PTA sponsoring annual movie fest.
March is just about here and for most parents of elementary school students in Belmont, the new month means two things: muddy shoes after recess play and the dreaded early release Wednesdays.

So how about a free movie played on the big screen? For the second year running, Belmont Savings Bank in coordination with the Burbank PTA, Butler PTA, Winn Brook PTA and Wellington PTO, is sponsoring free movie matinees at the Belmont Studio Cinema at …
