Dunkin' Donuts Branch That Was Shown in "Good Will Hunting" Is Closing

A Boston-area branch of Dunkin' Donuts that was shown in an award-winning film from the 1990s is going to be closing.

The Harvard Crimson is reporting that the donut shop at the corner of Mass. Avenue and Bow Street in Harvard that was seen in "Good Will Hunting" is planning to close next week, with the owner of the franchise looking for a new location. The store--which also houses a Baskin-Robbins--was used in a scene from the 1997 movie where Matt Damon (as Will Hunting) plastered the phone number of a woman he met on the window and yelled "How do you like them apples?" (The woman being Skylar, who was played by Minnie Driver.)

The soon-to-close Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins outlet is located at 1 Bow Street, which is just east of the heart of the square.

Thanks to Eater Boston for bringing this to our attention (via BostInno).

I'm almost positive that the one in the movie was next door, in half of where Grafton St. is. I'm pretty sure the current one is where the Bow and Arrow used to be. I think they moved it over to the old Bow and Arrow space when Grafton moved to that corner.
