We here at The Broad Theater believe that choice is essential. With four screens available, we want to make sure that every week you have the ability to choose the movie that suits your mood. With this week’s new selections, we offer you three films that are truly unique and independent.

COLOSSAL is a Kaiju (ed note: Japanese for “strange beast”) movie starring Anne Hathaway. We honestly thought we’d never write a sentence like that, but here we are. Continue reading »

This Week at The Broad, we’ve got two new films and a slew of special events to go over so let’s get straight to the run down, shall we?

T2: TRAINSPOTTING is the long awaited sequel to one of the outright classic independent films of the 90’s. Rather than the typical overdue sequel that forgets what made the original so amazing, this is a mature sequel that brings back the characters you love (led by a still-mesmerizing Ewan McGregor) with something to say about the passage of time. 20 years may have passed, but Danny Boyle and crew still know how to crank out a classic.

In the somewhat lean film landscape in April, it is our mission to bring you the type of film screenings that you used to always read about happening in other cities. $2 Tuesday continues next week with the immortal martial arts classic BLOODSPORT. If you agree with us that all films are better with Jean-Claude Van Damme in them, then we expect to see you next Tuesday evening. $2 drink specials will be served as well for your responsible enjoyment.

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.

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.
