VIRTUAL VACATION USA

Friday, April 3 – Thursday, April 9, 2020

This program of films takes us on a virtual journey around the United States to cities we can, unfortunately, only dream of visiting right now. In each of these titles, cities both large and small appear as characters in their own right. Sometimes, as in LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF, they are the point of the exercise but usually, they pretend to just be in the background – an often uncredited supporting player in the action. Stay tuned for a future installment that will take us around the world! Learn more →

Y’KNOW, FOR THE KIDS

New Selections Daily

We at The Brattle love kids movies but you wouldn’t necessarily know it by looking at our regular programming.

KEEP YOUR DISTANCE

Friday, March 27 – Thursday, April 2

While we are all doing our best to flatten the curve on COVID-19 while practicing social distancing, we thought it might be good to have some reminders that, while it’s hard to not be able to hang out with friends, sometimes, it’s better NOT to get involved with other people. To that end, we present this series of films that feature sometimes hilarious, sometimes thrilling, but always cautionary tales of when it might have been best to just leave well enough alone – even if the end result is a happy ending.

A LITTLE FAITH: INSPIRED BY SAINT MAUD

Wednesday, March 18 – Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Using Saint Maud, the acclaimed new religious/psychological horror film from Rose Glass, as a jumping off point, we’re excited to feature this series of films that explore the dangers of faith – either too much or not enough. Psycho killers, Satanic possessions, biblical disasters, cult freakouts, witchcraft, even the Antichrist himself – this series has it all. Learn more →
