Watching a movie gives audiences a chance to capture that moment’s resonant je ne sais quoi, which is French for “popcorn smell.” Rejoice in artful concessions with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a movie ticket, popcorn, and soda package at The Brattle Theatre in Cambridge (a $61.50 value). The package includes:
- Four general-admission tickets (a $9.75 value each)
- Two large popcorns (a $4.75 value each)
- Four regular sodas (a $3.25 value each)
Since 1953, The Brattle Theatre has mined the silver screen for classic, foreign, art-house, and groundbreaking independent movies, engaging audiences with repertory film series focused on particular directors and genres. Supplying four tickets, four regular sodas, and two large popcorns, the movie package creates an ideal evening-outing opportunity for you, your imaginary friend, your imaginary enemy, and your imaginary landlord. Different films screen every day at the Brattle, except for repeat runs on the weekends. From Friday, August 19 to Sunday, August 21, French auteur Catherine Breillat paints a fantastical vision of the female psyche in the area premiere of The Sleeping Beauty. Then, on Wednesday, August 31, explore primordial cave drawings in Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams, a far more engaging film than its prequel, Cave of Forgotten Car Keys.
The Brattle Theatre
The Brattle Theatre’s screens have been glowing with an eclectic slate of films since 1953, but its cultural legacy stretches back to 1890 when it first opened as a live theater. Its productions seemed destined to eventually intertwine with the burgeoning Hollywood industry, and today, the venue keeps its artistic roots alive by showing a full roster of classic, foreign, and independent movies. The cinema-savvy staff frequently bundles pictures into special repertory series—past programs have centered around a vast array of topics, ranging from tributes to Greta Garbo and Ingmar Bergman to a series of documentaries on Clark Gable's mustache. To bolster the cinematic experience, moviegoers snack on locally-made concessions including traditional box office candy as well as baked goods and beer.
