This week, we’ve decided to do a little sprucing up with our film lineup and give you not just one new film, or two new films, but THREE NEW FILMS all on the same day. This Friday we have three new releases that run the gamut from family friendly big-budget fare, to a return from a filmmaker who made the most critically acclaimed film ever shot in Louisiana.

Disney and Pixar’s “Onward"

Disney and Pixar’s “Onward”

ONWARD is the latest Pixar joint, and we don’t have to remind you of their track record. This movie takes the trope of children dealing with the loss of a parent and turns in on its head with excellent results. Add in some fantasy D&D elements and you’ve got something for kids and the parents who still remember where their D20 is at. Check it out starting this Friday. Continue reading »

This week brings both Valentine’s Day and a slew of Mardi Gras parades to our fair city, and we get it, you have a lot of entertainment options to choose from. Might we offer a humble suggestion? Nobody is going to spray paint their spot in our theater, and our ladders are stored far away from your eye lines. And while we don’t have any shoes to hand out, we do have a fabulous new release and a returning favorite for you to watch this weekend.

THE PHOTOGRAPH opens on Valentine’s Day, and there is no better weekend to catch it. Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield star in a tale about a daughter trying to piece together the life of her late mother while falling in love with the journalist assigned to do the same thing. We’ll have bubbly and strawberry packages available for $25 on Valentine’s Day no matter what movie you’re seeing. (Hint hint folks.) Tickets are available now. Continue reading »

Do you believe in second chances? We do. This weekend, we are bringing back what we consider the best film to not get nominated for Best Picture so that you can judge for yourself. Did it deserve the slight or should it have gotten the 10th spot on the Oscar shortlist?

UNCUT GEMS returns on a limited schedule this weekend. Starring Adam Sandler and directed by the Safdie Brothers, this was a favorite of our audiences that sadly had to end its run on the early side. We aim to make up for that with these additional shows. Tickets are now on sale. Continue reading »

Dr. Ali Sadeghi hosts
“Let’s Hear It For The Girls” breast cancer fundraiser gala

City lights twinkled on the waterfront. Neon windbreakers and leg warmers twirled on the dance floor at La Maison Du Lac on Lakeshore Drive in New Orleans on a beautiful fall night. On the 25th of October, the Sadeghi Center for Plastic Surgery hosted its first “Let’s Hear It For The Girls” Gala to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Complete with a DJ jockeying ’80s dance tunes, delicious food, a photo booth, and a live auction, the event raised over $30,000 for the cause. Continue reading »

You may have seen recent news of the New Orleans City Council adopting the Mayor’s proposed budget.  I am writing before Thanksgiving to emphasize what government did for the people we represent.  The Council and the Mayor worked together to increase critical City services without increasing the City’s millages.

In politics, there is a tendency to speak in broad strokes.  The details matter in this case.  There were 90.69 millages belonging to the City and City-related entities before this year’s property assessments.  After skyrocketing assessments, those millages were rolled back by law to 86.09.  The question then was how to upgrade City services without rolling the overall millage rate above 86.09.

A New Orleans-based startup is working to match verified behavioral health treatment providers with patients who need their help. The Trusted Provider Network (TPN) platform is just that: an online network of licensed clinicians across the state, connecting their clients with specialists that would benefit them the most.

According to their website, “TPN offers a local community with a national reach to providers who meet the highest code of clinical services, ethics, and professional standards.”

TPN CEO Trevor Colhoun

CEO Trevor Colhoun, who has a background in capital markets and private equity, saw an opportunity with TPN to fix some of the issues faced when dealing with the behavioral health system.

“Two years ago, I started getting very fascinated with behavioral health. We had some family members go through different aspects of the behavioral health path,” Colhoun said. “It was awful to see the process and how it was occurring. On an advocacy and philanthropic side, we got involved.” Continue reading »

I’ve known Aimee for years through her hard work and dedication to making our city a better place in which to live. She is a good government candidate who knows how to get things done and will bring trust and integrity to the Legislature. While most politicians talk about problems, Aimee solves them. She’s been effective in helping the New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation work to improve safety, and she will be able to do more in the Legislature.

The weather in New Orleans can be unpredictable. But if you know Louisiana, one thing you can almost always count on is the heat and humidity.

Keeping some things in storage can be difficult because certain items like clothes, artwork, and furniture are more susceptible to damage from extreme changes in temperature from severe heat or cold. That’s why climate-controlled options are necessary for storage in New Orleans.

Here are just a few reasons why climate-controlled storage is so critical: Continue reading »

When I talk to voters in District 91, public safety is always a top concern. I believe there are policies and investments we can make to strengthen the safety of our families and our neighborhoods.

First, I lost my mom to mental illness and substance abuse. It shook me, and I pledge to work so that no one loses a family member this way. Currently, our jails serve as de facto mental health institutions, creating a cycle of crime and mental health struggles. We can and should give mental health professionals more resources in New Orleans and build on successful programs like the Vera Institute’s collaboration with the NOPD’s 8th District, where people at risk for arrest due to mental illness get connected with treatment professionals instead of law enforcement.

In a state that claims to be pro-family, Louisiana has serious work to do to support families and our children, which is why I testified before the Legislature last year on paid family leave.  According to United Way, half of families with children are under the poverty level. This is unacceptable.

As a dad to a two-year-old daughter, I understand how important it is to build a solid foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing.  We have to invest in her generation at a young age: it is the single most important investment we can make. That is why early childhood education will be a priority for me in the State Legislature. Continue reading »

I’m ready to help improve
infrastructure and drainage.

Every day I walk throughout District 91, our neighbors remind me of the need to improve our infrastructure and drainage.

Given our geography and the decades of neglect, our infrastructure problems are going to take time and relentless effort to fix. I have the experience working in the U.S. Congress and state legislatures across the country to develop and pass legislation to address community challenges. Continue reading »
