The Holdovers

Not only can you see THE HOLDOVERS at the Somerville Theatre – you can see the Somerville Theatre in​ THE HOLDOVERS. A scene from the film was shot in our lobby and main theater. We were thrilled to host Alexander Payne and his amazing film crew for a day and witness just a little bit of this wonderful film being made. Don’t miss it. 


From acclaimed director Alexander Payne, THE HOLDOVERS follows a curmudgeonly instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually, he forms an unlikely bond with one of them — a damaged, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa) — and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph).
