Brattle Needs Your Help!!
CAMBRIDGE, MA — The Brattle Theater is in the middle of its largest and most serious fundraising campaign in its 53 year history. You can read about the campaign and the history of the theater here: http://www.brattlefilm.org
In October 2005, the Brattle initiated the “Preserve the Legacy” campaign. The goals of the fundraising drive was to raise $400,000 by the end of 2005 and an additional $100,000 by the end of 2006. Due to strong community support for this non-profit theater, the response and media converage has been overwhelming. Although they did not meet this lofty goal by the end of the year, the good news is that the Brattle was given a 1 year lease extension and now has all of 2006 to raise the remaining money.
As of January 1st 2006, the Brattle has raised $200,000, but they need to raise $300,000 more before February of 2007. If you love old theaters and preserving classic venues, please contribute whatever you can via the Brattle website. They could use all of the help they can.
