Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Buy Tickets

New Digital Restoration!

75th Anniversary!

(1939) dir Frank Capra w/James Stewart, Jean Arthur, Claude Rains [129 min; DCP]
It’s been over 15 years since the Brattle last played this American classic and we’re thrilled to present it in a new restoration. Stewart plays Jefferson Smith, a bumbling newbie Senator in Washington who, unbeknownst to him, has been chosen to serve because of his apparent naïveté. Unfortunately for the corrupt politicians and businessmen who seek to manipulate him, Mr. Smith proves to be a stubborn idealist. One of the most stirring and funny films about American politics ever made.
