MBTA New System Map 2014Building on the new MBTA Extended Late Night Service on Friday and Saturday nights, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and MBTA today joined the City of Boston and local theaters in announcing Late Night Arts film screenings scheduled for this upcoming Friday and Saturday nights, September 26-27.

Four local theaters have scheduled seven films with show times just prior to midnight, including the late night theater cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, along with The Breakfast Club, The Boxer’s Omen and Wayne’s World.

All of the theaters and late night film screenings can be reached by using the popular MBTA Extended Late Night Service, which began in March and extends hours of service by ninety minutes until approximately 2:30am for Rapid Transit and Key Bus Routes on Friday and Saturday nights. In the 26 weekends of extended hours since late night service began on March 28, more than 520,000 trips have taken between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 3 a.m. on weekends.

“Extended weekend hours on the T have attracted hundreds of thousands of customers looking for a safe and convenient ride to work or entertainment,” said MassDOT Secretary & CEO Richard A. Davey. “We encourage riders to take a bus or the subway and enjoy a movie this weekend.”

“The City’s work through our Late Night Task Force has been focused on a number of initiatives relative to making Boston a vibrant, cosmopolitan city,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “The success of the MBTA’s extended hours underscores the interest in these initiatives. The ‘Late Night Arts’ programming is a creative and entertaining way to engage those who are living, studying, and working in Boston.”

“We run midnight films every weekend of the year, and our attendance has grown since the rollout of late night service. I directly poll my audiences and have asked if the late night service has made a difference in their coming out, and people have raised their hands to say that it has,” says Mark Anastasio, Program Manager, Coolidge Corner Theatre.

“Our late night weekend service has attracted students, service employees, entrepreneurs, and people of all ages,” said MBTA General Manager Dr. Beverly Scott. “I am pleased to see the T help to deliver a fun weekend outing in the local theaters as we continue to improve our regional quality of life.”

Working with the City of Boston, MassDOT and the MBTA are planning additional activities coming soon that will highlight the availability of extended late night MBTA service on Friday and Saturday nights.

AMC Loews Boston Common: Saturday, September 27, 11:59PM: The Rocky Horror Picture Show
