Double Features

Due to rising film cost, we must, unfortunately, change our double feature policy. As of Jan 9, 2015, a double feature (i.e. two films screening back-to-back and listed as a “double feature”) will cost $13 general admission or $11 for students, seniors or children. As a special thank you to our members, you will still only need to use 1 member pass for both films in a double feature. Single feature ticket prices are listed above.

Member Passes/Double Date Passes/Groupon Passes

Passes can be used for admission to most films, including special engagements and films playing as part of a repertory series (except if noted). Passes may not be used for admission to special events unless explicitly noted. For Brattle Members, discount tickets may be offered for select special events. Events where passes are not accepted will be noted as “No Passes”, “No Passes Accepted” or indicated with .

Brattle Members may also take advantage of a $2 discount off our regular full-price ticket, in place of using a pass. This is also useful when purchasing advance tickets or when you have run out of passes. Please present a valid membership card at the box office when picking up discount tickets.

Some obligatory fine print: Member Passes are valid for one year, have no cash value, and may not be redeemed for anything other than admission. Groupons/Groupon Passes are subject to the terms outlined at time of sale. Management reserves the right to revoke passes or deny entry at their discretion.

Gift Cards

Gift cards can be redeemed at the Brattle Theatre for admission, concessions purchases, memberships, and merchandise. Gift cards cannot be used for online ticket purchases. Gift cards are not redeemable for alcoholic beverages at the concession stand.
