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.

We here at The Broad love music. We trust our sound system to our staff and are constantly rewarded with a wide variety of music to brighten up our lobby. In honor of that love, we are dubbing this week musical week and bringing you two new musicals with very different backgrounds.

THE LURE is a Polish vampire-mermaid musical. Read that sentence again. We can assure you that there won’t be another Polish vampire-mermaid musical released this year in theaters. Full of visual flair and a genre-hopping story, we can’t recommend enough this feature for those late-night adventurous members of our audience. Continue reading »

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.

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 »

This Week at The Broad, we continue our record-breaking run of HIDDEN FIGURES and welcome back Jim Jarmusch with PATERSON. With more Oscar-worthy films than you can shake a stick at, this week’s newsletter is now available.

Right now at The Broad Theater, we are playing films with a combined total of 29 Academy Award nominations. If you’ve been following us for the last few months you’ve in fact have had the opportunity to see seven of the nine films nominated for best picture. Continue reading »
