Benjamin Franklin High School Most Likely to Succeed class picture

Students, faculty, staff, and parents at Ben Franklin High School will open the school’s gates on Thursday, Oct. 11, and greet prospective students and their families from across New Orleans for an up-close look at the Ben Franklin experience.

“Our students love to offer a one-on-one guided tour for each visitor, discovering where their interests are, what inspires them, and how they can find that at Ben Franklin,” says Admissions Director Lynn Jenkins. “I find ninth graders to be some of our very best ambassadors because they can really explain to prospective students what the transition was like from middle school to Franklin and what they can expect.” Continue reading »

So they say fall is here and yet from our location on North Broad it looks increasingly like the anti-groundhog has promised us six more weeks of summer. The fall movie season however is just days away as award contenders make their way from the festivals up north to the cinemas down south. This week’s new release is a true pleasure, no guilt required.

NIGHT SCHOOL stars the breakout star from Girl’s Trip, Tiffany Haddish, along with one of America’s most popular comedians, Kevin Hart. For most of you, we don’t need to tell you any more about this movie, these two folks are just that likable. For the rest, this comedy promises to be a great kickoff to fall with plenty of laughs in store. We have a sneak peek screening available this Thursday night with regular screenings starting this Friday. Continue reading »

Auctioneer and Crescent City Auction Gallery (CCAG) owner Adam Lambert started working for his dad at the ripe age of five. At the time, Sidney Lambert was manager of a New Orleans auction house. Young Adam would help during auctions by running bid sheets from the auction podium to the main office.

Now, some 30+ years later, and a decade in the making, the tables have turned. Sidney is now working for Adam, and the two, along with dedicated staff, will soon celebrate a milestone, the 10th Anniversary of CCAG. They will celebrate the only way they know how, by holding a special 10th Anniversary auction.

We’re reaching that part of the year when all of us start becoming amateur meteorologists as the waters of the gulf start churning up. Our lineup is also in a great state of flux as we move in two new films featuring dangerous people and dangerous visions. Join us for a journey to the dark side, will you?

WHITE BOY RICK is the DIY tale of a young man who became a drug kingpin before he became a high school graduate. Based on the very true story, Matthew McConaughey stars as Rick’s father who after getting jailed needs the help of his son to get free. A touch of cocaine here, a little FBI entrapment there, and the rest of the tale becomes a lot less simple. We will be showing a special sneak preview of this film tonight, so grab those tickets in advance on our website. Continue reading »

Before we begin with this week’s newsletter, we’d like to thank all of you for your understanding and patience over this past weekend. No movie theater wants to have a projector failure followed by a power outage, but any theater would want to have the support we received when it happened. If you got a rain check this weekend, please know that our rain checks have no expiration date as long as you hold onto the ticket stub. Now that we’ve said our peace, let’s talk about some movies!

THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS is the rare documentary that comes with a spoiler warning. We suggest that you watch the trailer on our website and a few reviews, but do try to stay away from any independent research as you are going to want to be surprised by what this movie reveals. Catch it this week and tell your friends as little as possible. Continue reading »

You are feeling it right now. The sudden urge to take a break from the heat and relax. This weekend, we invite you to take that break with us and catch one (or both) of our two new releases. Each one promises to be completely divorced from the reality around you.

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is the directorial debut from Boots Riley, the rapper-turned-filmmaker who’s style is getting compared favorably to filmmakers like Spike Lee and Spike Jonze. We could tell you more about the movie but the fact of the matter is this movie deserves to be seen in full, on the big screen, with as little introduction as possible. It’s good, it’s unique, it’s here this Thursday night. See it. Continue reading »
