Staff Picks (past events)Repertory Series ArchiveThings to Come: The Birth of Sci-Fi Cinema


Double Feature with AELITA: THE QUEEN OF MARS (4:00, 9:30)

Please Note: Today’s showtimes changed after our Winter 2020 calendar went to press. We regret any inconvenience.

1927 • dir Fritz Lang w/Brigitte Helm, Alfred Abel, Gustav Froehlich, Rudolf Klein-Rogge • 153 min • DCP

One of the most famous science-fiction films of all time, Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS paints a stark portrait of a divided mega-city where the rich live a utopic life above ground while the workers – the lifeblood of the city – toil in subterranean factories. A sort of Romeo & Juliet story develops between an idealistic young woman from the lower class and a high-born son of the aristocracy that is complicated when a mad scientist creates a chaos-sowing robot duplicate of the woman.

Staff Pick! Joey, Dave
Dave: “Metropolis is so old timey good!”

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
