The Brattle Theater is just one example of local art being popular with people looking for a fun time. It’s been around since 1953, and provides an alternative to a movie market that’s oversaturated with superheroes and aliens coming to colonize Earth. If you like old classics, cool international films, or new independent movies, this is the place to go. It provides the old film-through-projector movie going experience that many miss from before the digital age, and it has ticket prices that are much more affordable than what most theaters charge for a 3-D blockbuster. Located right off the Harvard red line T-stop, the Brattle Theater makes a great activity for a night out with friends or a date.
