1:20:00 • We take a look back on the 20 years of our theatre’s history as a thriving non-profit institution. Looking at the highs and lows, the film’s we premiered, and the decisions Ned and Ivy made when they took on running the Brattle. And we address a listener question about the “cinema as church” analogy we made during our Movies About Going to the Movies episode, and consider the difference between the way films depict movie-going vs TV-watching:
