On March 4, 2016 we didn’t cut any ribbons or launch any balloons. The day we opened our doors was focused squarely on hanging up the final signs and hardware needed to be ready for our opening lineup of films like WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT, MUSTANG, A WAR, and our double feature of GALAXY QUEST and SPACEBALLS. Those early days featured a heavy lineup of arthouse films as well as some screenings that were a bit ahead of their time (to the dozen or so people who saw 54, we love you). May rolled around and that’s when the major studios finally answered our calls and The Broad became the beautiful mix of big and small programming that you’ve all come to love.
A year later and it still feels like we have so much to do to make your movie-watching experience the best it can be. We’re still working hard to make buying tickets online as painless an experience as possible, and we’re now hiring additional staff for the busy summer season. We appreciate all of you for joining us at this point in the journey, and we’re all excited to show you what we’ve got planned for next year.
THE SALESMAN is this year’s winner for Best Foreign Picture at the Oscars, something that we were so hoping would be the case. To be able to show you this amazing Iranian film was one of our big hopes coming out of awards season and this weekend we hope that you get the opportunity to catch this captivating film.
LOGAN, KEDI, GET OUT, and I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO continue their runs at the theater with GET OUT staying in the big house for another weekend. This week promises to be another crazy one at the theater, but we’ve got a new trick up our sleeve to help you plan ahead. If you go to our Facebook page you can now click on the BUY TICKETS link and purchase your tickets straight from there. This works beautifully on mobile and desktop so don’t hesitate to lock in your seats early for the show.
Finally, a note about a special event this Saturday. Michael’s Mystery Movie Vol. 1 is a special screening being hosted by Mike D for his 30th birthday. Mike is one of the managers here at The Broad, and he will be screening a film that no one will know what it is until it begins at 7:30 p.m. 100% of all ticket sales for this event will be donated to NAMI New Orleans to help with the mental health needs of those in this city. This event is open to the public, and if you’re feeling adventurous, we think you’ll enjoy what you’ll end up seeing.
