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!!!!!

BEEN going to this lil hole down the stairs on Brattle Street for years. Still remember the brown bag popcorn. The balcony still conjures memories from years ago.

Rich variety of films, wonderful space, other great events like the now annual Cambridge Community Chorus Messiah sing-along, a sense of continuity with the past that expensive boutiques and shoe shops have all but driven from Harvard Square (along with bookshops, the Tasty, Elsie's and a really vibrant mix of people).
