Introduction by Author John Darnielle

(1968) dir Peter Bogdanovich w/Tim O’Kelly, Boris Karloff, Arthur Peterson, Monte Landis, Peter Bogdanovich [90 min; 35mm]
Acclaimed author and musician John Darnielle introduces Peter Bogdanovich’s lean, mean thriller about a B-movie star (Karloff) trapped in the middle of a shooting rampage at a drive-in cinema.

“A fascinatingly complex commentary on American mythology, exploring the relationship between the inner world of the imagination and the outer world of violence and paranoia, both of which were relevant to contemporary American traumas.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“Targets scores an unnerving bullseye.” – Howard Thompson, New York Times

“Brilliant film.” – Combustible Celluloid

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
