News & Reviews

Brattle Theatre Named “2015 Best Cinema, Independent”

We are thrilled to announced that Brattle Theatre has been named “2015 Best Cinema, Independent” by Boston Magazine‘s Best of Boston awards!

“In a time when Hollywood seems to have lost its way (Mortdecai, anyone?), places like the Brattle Theatre stand as beacons of hope. Rather than subject you to Let’s Be Cops on three screens, the Brattle offers area premieres of independent films, Charlie Chaplin’s 100th birthday celebration, the annual Boston LGBT Film Festival, a week of avant-garde Polish cinema, and a newly restored print of Jaws. All of this, plus the warm feeling you get from supporting a local nonprofit theater, and the additional warmth provided by the local beer and wine available at the concession stand.”

Big thanks to the reviewers at Best of Boston and to you, our audience, for sharing our love of cinema!

Reviews for ‘Big Game’

Samuel L. Jackson in BIG GAME • Area Premiere June 26 – July 2 at Brattle Theatre★★★★☆ “A sparky romp that recalls the children’s action movies of the 1980s – The Goonies, The Golden Child or Home Alone.” – The Guardian

Big Game is big fun, a terrific genre film that once again shows that the Finns can make films of this nature that rival those from anywhere else in the world.” – Jason Gorber, TwitchFilm

“Even before Samuel L. Jackson shows up as President of the United States and braves the Finnish countryside, it’s clear that ‘Big Game’ will be a special kind of guilty pleasure.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire  More »
