“ I started going to the Brattle Theatre when I

was 13 and I’ve loved it ever since. No theater in the Boston area offers a more eclectic mix of films and I don’t have to feel guilty about supporting a giant corporation because the Brattle is local and non-profit! ”

“ Two weeks before my wife and I bought the Harvard Book Store, I

attended my first book store event at the Brattle as the prospective owner. The speaker was the Slovene philosopher and cultural critic Slavoj Zizek. Every seat was taken and Zizek was brilliant and hilarious; the crowd loved it. Whatever trepidation I had about buying the business disappeared that very night. You walk into the Brattle and you know that they are all about great movies; you walk into our store and you know that we’re all about great books. I think that this kind of obsessive, and somewhat idiosyncratic, devotion to curated content by local businesses is an invaluable part of any community’s cultural fabric.”

to our

supporters Here we are, halfway through 2013, and last year seems a distant memory. Indeed, a Brattle highlight from early 2013 that we’re not supposed to write about in this review of 2012 is front of mind. (Hint: It rhymes with “flicksmarter.”) And it’s so darn exciting that you can’t pretend it’s not on your mind too. But that’s not fair to 2012, which was also pretty darn exciting. The Boston Underground Film Festival returned to the Brattle; we screened premieres of The Story of Film, The Color Wheel and For Ellen; we hosted special events like the screening of Nosferatu with live accompaniment; and we paid tribute to Robert Downey, Sr. We delivered those programs even while we prepared our flicksmarter surprise. There were clues to our plans in our annual report last year and in talks during our 2012 events, like our annual Oscar Party and Gala soiree. Think about what else we can accomplish behind the scenes when we have such great support from the world’s finest patrons and members. (That means you, in case you were wondering.) Trust us, more good surprises are on the way. Perhaps you’ll even find clues to our plans in this report or at our events this year… Speaking of which, if you haven’t come to the Brattle recently, we must insist that you do. You’ll really enjoy the changes we’ve made, in sound and vision, comfort and ambiance. See you soon! Thank you again for your incredible support,

Ivy Moylan Larry Yu Executive Director

President, Board of Directors

highlights

and premieres

O

ver the past year, we premiered 27 feature films and produced 29 repertory programs. All together these films garnered 21 three- and four-star reviews. Nineteen of the films we premiered appeared on 2012 Top 10 lists for the leading local and national film critics; the top ranking film was The Comedy, which received seven 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:

Series and Premieres Modern China on Screen In collaboration with the American Repertory Theater and their production of Wild Swans, we screened a pair of films highlighting the changes in China since the revolution. Included in the program were Tian Zhuangzhuang’s The Blue Kite and Jia Zhangke’s 24 City.

Wild at Heart

Nicolas Cage: Greatest American Actor Inspired by an Internet fad pointing out Nicolas Cage’s many over-the-top performances, we took the opportunity to highlight the career of one of America’s most fearless actors. Though the title is tongue-in-cheek, we paid homage to some of Cage’s riskiest and most rewarding roles from the Coen Brothers’ Raising Arizona, to David Lynch’s Wild at Heart, to his Oscar-nominated turn as twin brothers in Adaptation.

Robert Downey, Sr. We were honored to host legendary subversive filmmaker Robert Downey, Sr. on our stage in conjunction with a retrospective of his early films dating from 1964 to 1975, each hilariously crude and fiercely experimental. Universal’s 100th Anniversary Celebration It’s practically unprecedented for the Brattle to devote an entire month to a single series (the last time we did it was for Janus Films’ 50th birthday) but we did just that for Universal Studios’ centennial, screening over 50 films from their first 100

Written on the Wind

years—many of them in new or restored 35mm prints. From Dracula to Written on the Wind to Fast Times at Ridgemont High, we worked to show the impressively diverse and accomplished films that have come out of this studio. The Story of Film: An Odyssey While each of our repertory series has the ability to educate the audience on a specific topic, issue or film artist, we took it a step further this past summer with Mark Cousins’ remarkable 15-part cinema history series, The Story of Film: An Odyssey. We presented each hour-long episode alongside a selection of the films that Cousins discussed. We also distributed episode guides with the entire list of films mentioned so that audience members could continue their viewing at home. We know that many of you enjoyed this “summer school” series as much as we did.

Noteworthy Premieres Although we are known for our classic film and repertory programming, the Brattle hosts premiere runs of a wide selection of new films each year. This was no different in 2012 when we presented everything from destined-to-be-classic international films (Silent Souls, Kill List, The Day He Arrives), to new films by Brattle-favorite directors (Guy Maddin’s Keyhole, Takashi Miike’s Hara Kiri), to challenging, boundarypushing independent films (The Comedy, The Color Wheel, Klown). We also made room for two acclaimed rock documentaries (Cure For Pain: The Mark Sandman Story and Shut Up & Play the Hits).

Cure For Pain

Special Events For the third year in a row, the Brattle Film Foundation (BFF) hosted a record number of exciting special events, including author readings, theatrical performances, comedy shows and live music events, as well as film directors, actors and other professionals. Independent Film Festival Boston We have proudly participated in the Independent Film Festival of Boston since their first festival in 2002. It was so exciting to see the festival reach its 10th anniversary and to witness how it has developed into the city’s premiere film festival. Annual Oscar Party In its 12th year, this is our longest-running fundraising event. The Oscars are the Super Bowl for movie lovers, and what better way to celebrate than with a cinema full of Brattle members. We roll out the red carpet, plug in the lights and invite our members to watch the Academy Awards on the big screen! There are also great auction items and delicious food donated by local restaurants—an event not to be missed.

An Evening with Susan Orlean We were ecstatic to partner with Grub Street to present one of their Publish It Forward events. In July, we welcomed acclaimed author and “Queen of Twitter” Susan Orlean back to the Brattle for a lecture. After her talk, Orlean introduced a screening of the silent classic Clash of the Wolves starring Rin Tin Tin—the subject of her most recent book.

Nosferatu

Nosferatu with Andrew Alden Ensemble We were thrilled to welcome a new voice, the Andrew Alden Ensemble, to our ongoing series of silent films featuring live scores. On Halloween night, Mr. Alden and his group, all students or graduates of Berklee College of Music, presented a stirring and suspenseful score for F.W. Murnau’s horror classic Nosferatu. Boston Society of Film Critics This event has turned into one of the premiere film gatherings in Boston and a great way to meet all of the local film critics. We were honored to be one of the 2012 award recipients for our Nicolas Cage series. The event includes an awards ceremony and a screening of one of the award-winning films. This year’s selecton was Moneyball, which was awarded best screenplay by the Society, with an appearance by screenplay contributor Stan Chervin.

Annual Brattle Watch-a-Thon Our annual Watch-a-Thon is just like those walking and running fundraisers, but without all the pesky walking and running. Instead, supporters raise funds for the BFF by doing what they love: watching movies! This year we turned the event into a two-day marathon over Columbus Day weekend, challenging participants to watch 12 hours of classics and another 12 of cult films. The individuals who raised the most money and watched the most films are both awarded prizes. Will anyone beat our reigning champion, Brian Paik, who has won both prizes for the last three years in a row?

What was the first movie you saw at the Brattle? “ I can recall where I saw pretty much every film I’ve ever seen in my life, but I’m not so good with when. I know I was in high school when I first came to the Brattle, and I think that the first film I saw there was Gillian Armstrong’s My Brilliant Career, but I can’t be sure.” Why do you support the Brattle? “ Even though I haven’t lived in Cambridge for more than 10 years, I still consider the Brattle to be my local theater.


8

Two years ago, when many film houses were in danger of closing, I decided I’d better start voting with my dollars by stepping up my financial support of all the independent cinemas I love in MA and NY, and making much more of an effort to go out and see films when they are screened in theaters. Those of us who love movies must not assume that magical places like the Brattle will always be here. If we care about watching movies as they were intended to be seen—communally, on a big screen, without interruptions and distractions (but with beer!)—then we must lend our support.”

What is the highlight of our last 10 years for you? “ Seeing gorgeous 35mm prints of every film in 2009’s Encounter David Lean series was a dream come true. Getting to see Howard The Duck in 35mm again at 2011’s Schlock Around The Clock was a close second.”

“ I support the Brattle because there

is nothing like it in the Boston area. Thanks to their programming I’ve been exposed to any number of movies that I would otherwise never have encountered. Even with Netflix, TCM and other options for seeing great movies at home, I can’t imagine not coming to the Brattle for the shared experience of seeing these movies with others. Several years ago I brought my children to see Planet of the Apes. Neither one knew anything about the ending, so I could watch their minds being blown by the final shot.”

“ About 25 years ago, I was excited

to attend a film noir double feature of Sudden Fear and Another Man’s Poison. It was the first opportunity for me to see these films since I saw them in the ‘50s, and yet on a double bill. It was a rainy night when I came to see it so I parked in the lot and walked in the rain to see this wonderful double feature. I love the old movie houses that I grew up with. Unfortunately, most of them have been extinguished. There are so few left and I think it is important to preserve the few we have. Congratulations to Ivy and the wonderful staff for keeping it alive.”
