Mardi Gras is here again! This season is full of parades, revelry, and costumes, but Fat Tuesday is about more than just partying all day long. In fact, Mardi Gras marks the end of the Epiphany season and the beginning of the Lenten season.

We invite you to come celebrate Lent with Mid-City’s newest church, St. Peter’s Presbyterian Church: St. Peter’s is hosting an Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday, February 10, at 6pm at 1222 N. Dorgenois Street (at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, in Gaudet Hall). Continue reading »

We understand that there are a few more entertainment options available for you than normal this weekend. With a little thing called Mardi Gras taking up most of the week, we are offering three news films (GET OUTELLE, and THE RED TURTLE) so that you have options that don’t involve the procurement of beads.

GET OUT might just be the most talked about film of the spring. Directed by Jordan Peele it is the tale of a boyfriend doing the most horrible thing he can imagine, meeting the girlfriend’s parents. Only thing is, it gets worse. We will be hosting a few sneak preview screenings on Thursday in case you just can’t wait to see what happens next.

This Week at The Broad, NERUDA becomes the newest addition to our film lineup. We think that calling it a simple bio-pic is a massive understatement. Telling the life story of the poet-politician Pablo Neruda, this film throws away any attempt at pure accuracy and instead goes for a more lyrical take on such a powerful figure. This is the kind of film we get very excited to show, so we hope you’ll share in this excitement by checking it out.

Our neighbors ask us all the time to play a crazy variety of films and we strive to pack as many of their requests into our four screens as possible, all while picking more obscure films that we think audiences should have a chance to see on the big screen. After a few weeks on focusing on smaller titles, we are going Hollywood this week with two titles that are sure to play to two WILDLY different audiences.

Every week, we learn more and more from you about what you want to see here at The Broad. Take for instance PATERSON. Did we know that some people wanted to see it? Sure, that’s why we went after it. But we did not expect it to do the crazy numbers that it did, so we have no problem bringing it back for another week.

On the other hand, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO has been receiving such wide acclaim and demand from our viewers that we’re taking the film and moving it to the big house for selected screenings. Continue reading »

A Taxing Task: Deciding If Your Business Structure Truly Fits
