I support the Brattle because I have a passion for film and appreciate the eclectic and fun atmosphere that the Brattle provides. And it’s local! One of my favorite Brattle memories is watching The Maltese Falcon in a sold out crowd a few years ago. What a wide array of people were there to appreciate a great film. Also the line during Dark Crystal is always fun. Seeing other folks passionate about movies you enjoyed as a child helps you realize that even in the digital age you can create and feel community around movies.

For those of us who grew up in the last half of the 20th century, the movies were our very own art form. The Brattle preserves what came out of that period and leads the way in recognizing the art being created today and in the future. My oldest Brattle memory, and one of my favorites, is attending Casablanca during Harvard’s reading period, when audiences would stand, raise glasses and sing La Marseillaise with Victor Laszlo. However, my personal favorite has to be when my son Paul’s first feature film, Grace, was shown at the Brattle and he did a Q&A with the audience after the screening.

To Our Supporters The Brattle Theatre celebrated its 60th birthday in 2013, but we’re not feeling our age. Indeed, last year we used the most modern of fundraising methods—Kickstarter—to reach out to patrons and fans all over the world. Over 2,000 answered the call, and we successfully funded a state-of-the-art digital projector and a new HVAC system, both sorely needed investments. And we didn’t stop there. We also installed the historic murals rescued from Casablanca restaurant by our generous landlord, Bill Poorvu, which are now displayed in prominent locations inside the theater. We upgraded our point-of-sale system to improve your ticket buying and concessions experiences. And while doing all that we hosted nearly 100 special guests including Edgar Wright, Ang Lee and Jane Powell and premiered a record number of films. We aren’t letting our age hold us back! Instead it’s a reason to do more, and to do it better. While we were hard at work behind the scenes last year, we also got a surprise from all of you: more people visited the Brattle than any year since 2003! This was the icing on our birthday cake. It was, quite frankly, our best year ever as a non-profit organization—even setting aside the support we received through Kickstarter. Thank you for proving that the Brattle, in her 60 years of cinema, means as much to you as to us and for giving us so many reasons to celebrate!

Highlights and Premieres

Oscar Isaac

Death Row Woman

Over the past year, we premiered 36 feature films and produced 25 repertory programs. All together these films garnered 53 three- and four-star reviews. Fifteen premieres appeared on yearend top-10 lists from leading local and national film critics; the top-ranking films we premiered were Upstream Color and Leviathan, which both received five mentions. We also hosted 10 regional film festivals and continued to develop partnerships with local cultural organizations, ensuring that we offer a diverse range of programs. Highlights of the year include:

Premieres & Series Noteworthy Premieres While known for our repertory programming, we strive to bring the latest features and documentaries to the area with our premieres. The first film shown on our new digital projector was the area-premiere of a locally produced documentary, Leviathan,

6

An Oversimplification of Her Beauty

which emerged as one of the most revered documentaries of the year. We continued to showcase captivating documentaries spanning a variety of topics: American Promise, Pervert’s Guide to Ideology and The Punk Singer. We also screened some genre-bending independent films: Upstream Color, An Oversimplification of Her Beauty and Sightseers. With our new digital projection system, we presented some stunning restorations of classic films: Journey to Italy, Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Badlands. Best of Bogart This year marked the 60th anniversary of the Brattle Theatre as a cinema, and what better way to honor this milestone than to pay tribute to Humphrey Bogart! The Brattle and Bogie have been linked since the 1950s, when we began the annual tradition of screening Bogart films during Harvard’s reading period, resulting in a “Bogie cult” which revitalized his popularity. 60 years later, he still draws the crowds with classics like Key Largo, The Maltese Falcon and, of course, Casablanca. Tarantino Chronicles For this series, we paired each of Quentin Tarantino’s features with a film it references as inspiration: Inglourious

Kim Taylor

Basterds with The Dirty Dozen, Reservoir Dogs with The Killing, and Jackie Brown with Foxy Brown. These double features allowed audiences to brush up on their film history and revel in Tarantino’s fanboy obsessiveness at the same time. Guns, Girls & Ghosts: The Warped World of Shintoho Films Shintoho Studio was one of the most prolific Japanese studios of the postWWII era. During a 14- year period, Shintoho produced over 500 features spanning a wide variety of genres from crime thrillers to campy horror and exploitation films. In the same vein as Roger Corman’s films, these low- (or no-) budget productions have since become cult classics and we were excited to present newly remastered versions of these hidden gems. Silent Screams For our favorite fall holiday, we presented two classic horror films with live musical accompaniment. First, Not So Silent Cinema performed a brand new score to The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Then the next night, Andrew Alden Ensemble presented an alternative live musical soundtrack to George Romero’s zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead.


Kickstarter

Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer

You Show Me Yours, I’ll Show You Mine: The Neil and Amanda Double Features Author Neil Gaiman and musician Amanda Palmer shared a personal (and important) moment in their relationship as a couple with our audience: screening a beloved film the other hadn’t seen. Neil selected Drowning by Numbers and If, and Amanda programmed Santa Sangre and King of Hearts. They introduced each film, explained their personal importance, and watched them with our audience. DCP Debut Thanks to our Kickstarter campaign, we installed a DCP projection system alongside our 35mm and 16mm projectors. To showcase this new technology, we programmed a series of classic films, all digital-only restorations that are heralded as exceptionally beautiful. This also allowed us to play films we normally couldn’t in past years due to limited or no print availability, such as Jaws, which we screened for a soldout audience on July 4th! The Complete Coens Two of the most fascinating and stylish filmmakers of the past 30 years, this team of writer/director/producer brothers has a restlessly creative spirit. Their films range

Ang Lee

from intense thrillers to film noir homages to absurdist comedy and beyond. Besides presenting a full retrospective of their career-so- far, we were lucky enough to have a sneak preview of their latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis, with leading actor Oscar Isaac present for a Q&A following the screening.

Special Events In 2013 we continued to host a variety of compelling special events, including author readings, theatrical performances, comedy shows and live music events, as well as film directors, actors and more. Royal Wedding with Jane Powell and Leonard Maltin We were thrilled to host one of the stops on Turner Classic Movies’ Road to Hollywood film tour with special guests, film author and historian Leonard Maltin and actress Jane Powell, leading a discussion before a packed house for Royal Wedding. Cornetto Trilogy with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Huge fans of the Brattle, director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost premiered the last film in their “Cornetto Trilogy,” The World’s End. We

Nick Frost and Simon Pegg

screened the first two films in the trilogy, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, as a special triple feature and complemented the event with some of the films that inspired them, creating an action-packed weekend. Ever anxious for the big day, audiences set a new record for ticket sales, selling out the triple feature in just seven minutes! Boston Asian American Film Festival It was an honor to have acclaimed director Ang Lee appear on our stage as part of the opening night program for Boston Asian American Film Festival. He introduced a special 20 th anniversary screening of The Wedding Banquet, recounting the difficulties he encountered trying to get the film made. Annual Gala To celebrate the Brattle’s 60th anniversary as a cinema, we recreated Rick’s Café from Casablanca at the Regattabar at the Charles Hotel. A troupe of actors circulated among the guests to create an interactive cinematic experience unlike any other! Our guest of honor for the evening, Cambridge City Manager, Richard C. Rossi, recounted his personal experiences working at the Brattle.

Richard Hunt Donor since: 2005

My wife and I left New York City and migrated to Cambridge back in 1956. At the time, we were ardent film fans and we immediately found the Brattle Theatre as a place to go to for a special evening. For over 50 years we have continued to support the Brattle because it has been, and continues to be, important in our lives. After all, viewing movies in a theater is the way we were brought up. In my mind, I can recall countless memorable screenings at the Brattle. An evening long ago, I took my British goddaughter to the revival of the film Giant. She was captivated by Rock Hudson and James Dean, I of course fell for Elizabeth Taylor. Although the Texas world of cattle ranching and oil drilling was foreign to both of us, we were enthralled by the story, the acting, the color and the family drama of the film. I have always remembered the experience and I believe the same is true for her. I hope the Brattle will last a long, long time.

2013 The Year in Review

S

ince 1953, the Brattle Theatre has been a destination for provocative, engaging and entertaining movies. Now, 60 years later, the Brattle Film Foundation is maintaining this legacy— inspiring the minds and hearts of us all. The BFF proudly carries out its mission to celebrate film as a popular and fine art form with significant cultural and historical value through our programs at the historic Brattle Theatre. We believe that viewing film is both a community and personal experience and are excited to have been able to provide this experience to hundreds of thousands of community members over the past decade. 2013 was a momentous year for the Brattle Film Foundation. In addition to celebrating the Brattle’s 60th anniversary as a cinema, we screened a record number of films, upgraded our ticketing system and integrated it with online sales, and installed DCP projection and a new HVAC system. Highlights of our incredible growth for the year include: • Raising over $170,000 in 34 days through our Kickstarter campaign • Growing attendance by 22% • Increasing memberships by 5% • Expanding foundation support by 26%

Casablanca Murals The closing of our longtime neighbor Casablanca restaurant was a sad loss for Harvard Square. Started by the same duo who founded our beloved cinema, Casablanca was a link to the heyday of Humphrey Bogart Festivals at the Brattle, when Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon would bring out Harvard students by the droves to soak up Bogie’s ineffable cool.

Not all of Casablanca’s atmosphere has dissipated however, as we are pleased to be the new home for some of Casablanca’s iconic murals! Now moviegoers can once again appreciate the work of David Omar White and reminisce about times gone by. Thanks to our landlord Bill Poorvu and Brattle Square Associates for loaning us these artworks and Gianfranco Pocobene and his son for assistance with the installation. Here’s looking at you, kid.

Kickstarter Thank you! In early 2013, because of you, we succeeded in a significant fundraising campaign to install state-ofthe-art digital projection and replace our obsolete HVAC system. The largest portion of this campaign centered on Kickstarter—the online fundraising platform. One of the most gratifying aspects of running a Kickstarter campaign is that success comes from community support. It was exciting to see our efforts championed locally by our regular patrons and business partners. It was equally thrilling to see strong support from those we don’t see every day— including some well-known “Twitterati” such as director Edgar Wright and author Neil Gaiman. In a period of just over a month, more than 2,000 individuals and businesses donated to the campaign, from all corners of the country, and helped us surpass our goal. But raising those funds was only the beginning…then it was time to actually undertake the upgrades. First we installed the brand new DCP (or Digital Cinema Package) projection system, along with a number of other small upgrades to our booth. That work

99 special guests 451 films screened 550 members 55,393 attendees $220,056 contributions $567,433 earned income $170,323 contributions to our Kickstarter campaign

was completed in June. In September (just in time for a bitterly cold winter!) we installed the new HVAC system—which included cutting a hole in the side of the building and craning out the old unit and in the new! Both projects have been immensely beneficial to the Brattle and we hope you have been able to personally enjoy them. Again, thank you.

Record Revenue We are excited to say that 2013 was officially our best year for program revenue since the Foundation started in 2001. We are particularly thrilled with the increase in film attendance. Since 2010 we have been on a slow rise out of a ticket sales slump that began in 2003 but the 2013 numbers are a significant jump. The initial decline has been blamed on the rise of Netflix and other on-demand services that are an ongoing challenge for the big chain theaters. The increase in sales, particularly for classic cinema, indicates a renewed interest in seeing films, both classic and new, on the big screen. And happily, 2014 is looking even better!

I support the Brattle because I am a film buff, unabashed, unembarrassed and enthusiastic. I support the Brattle because of the movies. Whether it’s a classic film that entertains and illuminates a piece of history, or a modern drama from another country that teaches me about another culture, I’ve probably seen it at the Brattle, and it’s probably contributed to my overall experience of the world. 12

I support the Brattle Theatre because the programming and the space provide a much needed cultural presence in Harvard Square and the greater Boston community. While it is important and delightful to be able to see old films, and new films that are not part of the mainstream, and even new films that are or will be part of the blockbuster collection, seeing these films in the theatre with an enthusiastic audience is a rare and wonderful experience. My favorite experience was attending a concert of folk artists to see the film, For the Love of the Music. The audience was a collection of legendary musical artists and their most ardent fans. It was a memorable evening.� 3
