Audience Profile

The Brattle Film Foundation’s programs attract over 50,000 people annually, most of whom are residents of Greater Boston—some travel from as far as Maine and Rhode Island. Our audience is as diverse as our programming, ranging from film novice to aficionado, young to old. The Brattle’s members and general audience are young, educated, artistic and international. 40% of our audience is between 25–29 years old and either work or live in Cambridge

They are either skilled professionals—scientists, programmers, designers, and artists—or graduate or doctoral students with flexible schedules. They use the Brattle calendar and website as the main program resource and decide to attend a film at least 24 hours in advance. They are committed to their community; many are active in local and national politics.

Our audience is comprised of sophisticated moviegoers, who favorably compare The Brattle Theatre to a range of other—in many cases larger—cinemas in cities such as New York, Toronto and Los Angeles. The Brattle is a destination for them.

Our audience trusts us to provide high-quality film programming and exciting special events. Brattle Film Foundation
