As many of you may already know, the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square is in serious trouble. Due to rising costs and declining attendance, they may be forced to close their doors at the end of this year, unless they can raise enough money to pay off past debts and stay in business.

Run by the non-profit Brattle Film Foundation, the Theatre is a film lover's institution, and the only single-screen moviehouse left in the Boston area. I've probably seen hundreds of films at the theatre during my eight years living in Boston; I also volunteered in the Foundation's offices from 2002-04.

In order to help the BFF realize its goal, I'm participating in the BRATTLE MOVIE WATCH-A-THON on a team with other members of my film group. Sort of like a walk-a-thon, the goal is to see as many films at the Brattle as possible between Nov. 11 and Dec. 4, and solicit pledges, with all proceeds going towards the BFF.
