This is the week in New Orleans where we all begin to start fiddling with our window AC units. Spring has arrived and with it comes new films and special events as we fill the gap between Oscar season and blockbuster season with some of our own home-grown programming.

This week’s new release is THE LAST WORD starring the legendary Shirley MacLaine. It is always a pleasure to a have a screen legend join a young cast and steal the show, and we think that this is a perfect example of that. Also starring Amanda Seyfried, this is a small film worthy of your attention.

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.

This Week at The Broad brings two new films for your post-carnival enjoyment, and they are rather different from each other to say the least. LOGAN is being described as the last Wolverine film to star Hugh Jackman. But even more than a swan song for a superhero, this is a drama that deserves respect even for those who aren’t into tights and spandex.
