The Brattle Theatre

True, there are a few places to see independent films around Boston, including the occasional museum, but it’s hard to beat this small but mighty theater’s regular programming. Whether it’s a mid-20th-century noir series or an obscure foreign flick, you’re unlikely to find this carefully curated selection of movies anywhere else in the city.
