Things to Come: The Birth of Sci-Fi Cinema

REPERTORY SERIES!

A YEAR OF SCIENCE FICTION

FRIDAY, JANUARY 24 – THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 2020

Kicking off our “Year of Sci-Fi,” we offer this brief survey of science-fiction filmmaking from the dawn of cinema up until 1949. Although most pre-1950 sci-fi was centered on mad scientists (and we’ve got our share below) and serial heroes, there are plenty of landmarks to see here, from silent classics, to famous monsters of filmland, to grand visions of faraway planets and distant times.

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
