Every single week, we at The Broad work to bring you films that are a bit off the beaten path. We also believe wholeheartedly that you shouldn’t have to leave your neighborhood to see the big hits that are often the lifeblood of the suburban multiplex. This week, we are juggling things up with widely-anticipated major release followed by a film that we think is ripe to become a cult classic.
GHOST IN THE SHELL is considered by many to be one of the best Japanese mangas ever created. It was previously adapted into an animated film in the 90’s (which we ended up showing a couple of months ago) and now makes it’s live action debut this weekend with a bang. We’ve got a sneak preview scheduled for this Thursday night so grab your tickets in advance.
RAW is a French horror film with a lot of buzz. The story involves a vegetarian who eats meat for the first time and decides to go on a rampage. The reviews however are focusing much more on what the film is saying about social constructs than the amount of blood on screen. So if you’re looking for a thinking-person’s horror movie, we think that this one certainly fits the bill.
The moment you’ve all been waiting for has arrived. $2 Tuesdays start this week with David Lynch’s WILD AT HEART. We’ve got lots of fun cult films to play throughout the month including BLOODSPORT and THE LAIR OF THE WHITE WORM along with $2 drink specials and other fun surprises. Buy your tickets online in advance to ensure a chance to witness these crazy films on the big screen one. more. time.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and GET OUT continue to play in our humble theater for another week. GET OUT just recently passed HIDDEN FIGURES to become the highest grossing film in our history, and we can safely say that this movie is going nowhere anytime soon as long as you keep buying tickets.
We are happy to announce that on April 4th we will be screening NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR along with hundreds of other theaters around the country to help raise funds for good causes. As the only theater in New Orleans currently scheduled as part of the event, we are donating a portion of each ticket to the Innocence Project – New Orleans. Come see a classic film that feels more timely than ever.
DONNIE DARKO is one of those dorm room classics that got passed around from DVD rack to DVD rack back in the early days of this century. We feel as though it needs to be experienced on a big screen with a rocking sound system so we’ve joined many theaters around the US and UK in bringing this film back with a brand new restoration in honor of it’s 15th anniversary. We’re also playing the film on 4/19 & 4/20, so that you may experience the film in any way that you see fit. Just don’t forget to hail the Uber.
