This morning the staff at The Broad woke up to a startling discovery. The entire lineup of films currently playing at the theater can now be called Oscar nominated films. Over the past twelve months we have played seven of the nine films nominated for Best Picture with four of those being played at this very moment. We even ended up playing one of the animated shorts with our free screening of REVOLTING RHYMES late last year. Continue reading »

The Hollywood Foreign Press has spoken: The Broad Theater shows the best films. Four of our pictures have 9 awards between them. THE POST opens this week, and while it was shut out at the Globes for its 6 nominations, any film combining the talent of Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep is worth the price of admission. This is the true story of The Washington Post newspaper’s struggle to publish the Pentagon Papers, which ultimately blew the lid off the government’s deception surrounding the Vietnam War.

First, a confession: the writer of this weekly newsletter is huge Star Wars fan. Two years ago, prior to the opening of our theater, he spent 20 hours at the multiplex watching all seven films in a row and swore that Episode 8 would play at The Broad where he would watch it then. That promise is fulfilled this Thursday as we open our doors for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.
