97 min • To celebrate “Reel Film Day” and in honor of the Brattle’s commitment to screening 35mm prints, we dive deep into why we love showing films on film and why Boston is such a unique and abundant city for repertory cinema. We talk with our fellow programmers and projectionists at some of the other five cinemas in Boston and beyond that continue this rich tradition. And we chat with some of our patrons, visitors, and fellow podcasters as to why they love the celluloid experience.
