When the vapor pressure of the bromine exceeds the atmospheric pressure on the surface of the liquid the liq will boil. The heat is needed to break the intermolecular attractions between the molecules of the bromine to escape. You can get the liquid to boil at lower temperatures by decreasing the pressure on the surface of the liquid.
