Film Noir Foundation board member Foster Hirsch will introduce Monday’s 8:15 screening!

A noir tinged version of The Great Gatsby? You better believe it when Alan Ladd (The Blue Dahlia) is top-billed and the supporting cast includes characters like Shelley Winters, Ed Begley, and permanent noir schlub Elisha Cook Jr. This version of the classic novel reframes Gatsby as a bootlegger and Nick Carraway as a man fascinated by his criminal swagger. Brattle debut!

Please Note: As of April 20, The Brattle will no longer require proof of vaccination/negative test result to attend our events, however masks are still required except when actively eating or drinking. Please visit theĀ Covid ResponseĀ page for complete details.
