The Boogie Man Will Get You

Double Feature with THE MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG (7:00)

1942 • dir Lew Landers w/Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, Maxie Rosenblum, Frank Puglia • 66 min • 35mm

Just 10 years after his turn as the monster in FRANKENSTEIN, Boris Karloff is already gleefully poking fun at the mad scientist archetype with this kooky comedy that co-stars the great Peter Lorre who is also enjoying the spoof. An eccentric inventor (Karloff) attempts to contribute to the war effort by creating his own superman in his basement laboratory while a local official (Lorre) looks on.

Staff Pick! Kim, Dave
Dave: “Poking fun at mad scientists ‘The Boogie Man Will Get You’ looks to be fun with Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre joining the hilarity”

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
