    It goes without saying that Brattle is the best. Keep an eye out for the weird theater and anything in October!

    The Brattle serves great beer. They usually have a couple of Cambridge Brewing beers on tap and big bottles from Pretty Things & Ipswich. Cheers!

    The popcorn is real popcorn, but it unsalted. If you like classic super salty movie theater popcorn, be sure to add plenty of it yourself. And the butter is real butter! Awesome.

    Sit on the balcony to get away with laughing inappropriately during the movie. Catch their double features when you can!
