Noir City: Boston 2018

Presented by the Film Noir Foundation and the Brattle

Friday, June 8 – Sunday, June 10, 2018

We at the Brattle couldn’t be more excited to team up with the fine folks at the Film Noir Foundation to present the first ever NOIR CITY: BOSTON! These wonderful celebrations of the dark art of noir filmmaking have been happening around the country for decades and it seems totally nutso that the Brattle has never participated – but we’re fixing that for good this year. Film Noir Foundation honcho and Turner Classic Movies host Eddie Muller will be on hand to introduce a spectacular selection of films he has handpicked featuring femme fatales, drunken private eyes, and enough depraved criminals to sink the Queen Mary. These 5 double bills from the classic noir period of (1942 to 1950) recreate the A & B filmgoing experience of the era – and feature work from many key talents of the genre … but, most importantly, they are all exceptional entertainment!

We’ll be going real old-school for these films offering double-feature-only tickets for each pair.

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
