Tips from Voters

  • This place is a treasure.

  • Great atmosphere! If you want to see a film with a bunch of people who get film, go to the Brattle. They show art, exploitation, cult, and classic films without being stuffy or pretentious. Plus they make fresh popcorn with real butter. I love it.

  • Brattle has the best and likely the rarest selection of films in the Boston area.

  • I come from Austin and this is the closest thing to the Alamo Drafthouse in the area -- all due to the vibe and the guy with the glasses who brings in great movies and great guests. I specifically loved the Love Witch and that he brought Allison Anders in. I need to go more often. THANK YOU!

  • There are hardly any indie theaters left--including some of those listed and being voted on!? Somerville, Waltham's Embassy and the Capitol in Arlington stopped showing anything but Hollywood blockbusters anywhere from 1 to 3 years ago. But the Brattle is still the best. Tied with the Harvard Archive at the Carpenter Center but that isn't listed.

  • Sentimental favorite, rescued in recent years by dedicated fans. Re-popularized CASABLANCA to many new generations. For that alone, they get my vote forever! But go sit in their seats, and see for yourself. Really miss their midnight option of 'Rocky Horror' audience participation, although the tradition is now in its 3rd local venue. The Founders also founded Janus Films to distribute classic foreign films. This theatre is a treasure! I just bought my tickets now for tomorrow eve 7pm event of original Lost World (1925) flic with live music accompaniment. Some tickets still available--highly recommended!!!!!
