Donor Spotlight:

Elsa Dorfman

Member Since 1996
(with husband Harvey Silverglate)

favorite movies: Strong stories—no murder, no guns, no car crashes, no explosions, no fires. If I have to, I can watch a whole movie through the sleeve of my coat...I am a real scaredy-cat and always have been when it comes to movies.

favorite seat: First floor, aisle seat towards the back. My husband and I dedicated it to my friend David Brudnoy.

favorite concessions: I try to stay away—I adore movie popcorn, alas.

"The Brattle is one of those precious movie theaters that make a town. It is like asking; why, by the way do you, love him??? How to answer??? I consider the Brattle one of the most, if not THE most, precious place in Harvard Square and I bow to the folks who help it exist." – Elsa Dorfman
