We Are Twisted F***ing Sister

Special Premiere Screening!

Co-presented by Vanyaland and The Voltage Factory on ‪Vanya Radio‬

(2014) dir Andrew Horn w/Twisted Sister [135 min; DCP]
When Twisted Sister got their big break in 1983, they became one of the biggest glam rock bands of the 1980s with their live shows drawing sell-out crowds and their music videos defining an early MTV. But the band that killed disco was no overnight success. WE ARE TWISTED F***CKING SISTER is the wickedly appealing and never-before-told story of the ten grueling years leading up to the band’s legendary career, recounted directly by the band themselves, their managers and their biggest fans.

“Uproarious! A tale of excess, egotism and absurdity.” – Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

NYT Critics Pick NYT Critics’ Pick! “A comprehensive and sometimes harrowing portrayal of the grind a working bar band in the 1970s had to endure to get by.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times

“Dee Snyder is charming and the movie is crammed with great archival footage of the band, ranging from their early days as a David Bowie cover act to their jamming onstage with Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead on British TV.” – Luca Cimarusti, Chicago Reader

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
