Buy Tickets

Double Feature with ISLAND OF LOST SOULS

Please note: due to an issue with the 35mm print, CAT PEOPLE (1942) will be screened on DCP.

1942 • dir Jacques Tourneur w/Simone Simon, Tom Conway, Kent Smith, Jane Randolph • 73 min • DCP

Director Jacques Tourneur and producer Val Lewton were masters of gothic horror and CAT PEOPLE is among their best films. The alluring Simone Simon plays a woman who might be turning into a panther when she allows her emotions to run away with her – or maybe it’s just that escaped big cat from the zoo. If you’ve ever jumped at that moment in a horror film or thriller when a surprising but non-threatening thing breaks a moment of deliberately built tension, you’ve experienced the “Lewton Bus” – a technique introduced in this picture.

Staff Pick: Jessie, Kim, Erica, Alissa

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
