The Brattle Theatre screens the best in classic, cutting-edge, international, and independent films. Nestled in the heart of Harvard Square, the Brattle is a historic single-screen cinema with a one-of-a-kind rear-screen projection system. We select as many of our concessions from local vendors, from Cambridge Brewing Company to Christina’s Ice Cream.

At a time when art houses and independent theatres continue to be consumed by large conglomerates, the Brattle Theatre has remained successful and true to its roots as a venue to see innovative and essential films. Starting with the programming of Cy Harvey and Bryant Halliday in 1953, the Brattle has been the unofficial film school for Boston-area residents, showing everything from Casablanca to Breaking the Waves, the works of Buster Keaton to Wong Kar-Wai.
The non-profit Brattle Film Foundation has operated the Brattle Theatre since 2001. Learn more about the Brattle Film Foundation’s non-profit and fundraising activities here.
