A Benefit for Ukraine and Beyond

Screening on 35mm

While The Brattle often screens CASABLANCA in the context of the central romance or as a showcase for our main man Humphrey Bogart, it also remains a remarkable reflection of the displacement, uncertainty, terror, tragedy, and anxiety created by war. These elements can be seen in the experiences of all of the sympathetic characters in the film – from the leads right on down to the bit players (many of whom were already refugees from the war in Europe in real life). We’ve been looking for a way that The Brattle can contribute to support not only those displaced by the current war in Ukraine but also the millions of refugees around the world who are struggling with displacement, and we hope that in a small way this screening can help.

Tickets for this special benefit screening are $15. No Brattle passes.
All proceeds from the screening will go to the IRC to support programs in Ukraine and around the world.

Please Note: All in-person screenings at the Brattle now require proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test (within 72-hours). See the Covid Response page for complete details.
