Saw an interview with Rachel Dratch here for the Women in Comedy Festival. I was definitely surprised by how small and intimate the theatre is. Definitely a bit run-down, but a landmark nonetheless.

Walk thru Harvard Yard and you will find thw wonderful Memorial Hall which has the wooden built Brattle Theater. They have lots of activities there, some of them free. Easy access and friendly volunteer host.

There's movies of all kinds here. It's the best theater around to discover new gems or revisit old favorites. And the popcorn has real butter for less than chain theaters! Give these wonderful people a try!

We went to the Fall Focus Film Festival here. The movies were great. The crowd was outstanding. The theatre is comfortable and beautiful. This is well worth a visit or 10!
