Brattle Theatre

Whether you’re into restored cuts of cinema classics or the latest Romanian masterpiece, you can find it at the Brattle, Harvard Square’s beloved one-screen theater. Despite what seems like constant change in the neighborhood, the theater stands as the epicenter of the area’s indie-film ecosystem, offering everything from the sublime to the very strange (see: the venue’s monthly Trash Night, which celebrates the best of the worst straight-to-VHS fare).

40 Brattle St., Cambridge, 617-876-6837,
