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.

This is the year of the homemade King Cake.
Locals are trying their hand at baking the glittery tradition at home for Mardi Gras. Many of our best chefs are also sharing homemade King Cakes and their recipes with a lucky few. These are not restaurant recipes; this is what is served on their own tables. Recipes can be original, complicated, easy, or from known cookbooks. The doughs may be dissimilar, but the toppings are always a dusting of sparkling purple, green, and gold.
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.
