The Saturday All-You-Can-Eat Cereal & Cartoon Party: Halloween Edition

Brattle friend and dedicated pop culture archaeologist, Kier-La Janisse, provides us with another epic program of Halloween themed cartoon delights! Expect animated versions of some of your favorite creepy crawlers plus vintage ads and promos that span decades and help to create an only-in-our-dreams, best-of-all-time Saturday morning experience like no other. We’d wager that there will be some Scooby Doo ‘toons and Count Chocula ads in the mix but you’ll never know what’s coming until it shows up on screen! Join us for this always-fun, exuberant, and sugary-cereal-filled delight!

All tickets are $12 and include an all-you-can-eat (while supplies last) cereal buffet!

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
