Dunkin' Donuts Branch Shown in "Good Will Hunting" to Remain Open After All
Last week we reported that a local branch of Dunkin' Donuts that was shown in the movie "Good Will Hunting" was going to be shutting its doors. Now we have learned that the shop will stay open after all.
A new article from The Harvard Crimson says the branch of the donut chain that is located at the corner of Mass. Avenue and Bow Street in Cambridge's Harvard Square will continue to operate (along with Baskin-Robbins, which is in the same space), and that the "closing" signs were removed earlier today. It appears that the lease, which expired in 2012 and was to be resold, is now apparently back with the donut and ice cream shops once again.
The store was shown in a scene from the 1997 movie where Matt Damon uttered the now-famous line, "How do you like them apples?"
The Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins outlet can be found at 1 Bow Street on the eastern edge of Harvard Square.
Thanks to Universal Hub for bringing this to our attention.
