Brattle Theatre in trouble

CAMBRIDGE, MA — The Brattle Theatre is currently in financial trouble due to art-house competition as well as the DVD market.

Six months ago, the Brattle Theatre, the landmark, single-screen art house movie theater in Harvard Square, announced that unless it raised $500,000 in 2006, it would have to close its doors.

The good news is that about halfway to its deadline, the theater has raised about half the money ($270,000). The bad news is that the Brattle’s financial challenges aren’t likely to go away, even if they hit their target.

I was at the Brattle last night for a “donor appreciation” screening event, and the management were pretty upbeat about the fundraising campaign. The headline you used, “Brattle Theatre in trouble”, is not supported by the article you linked to.
