This week, The Broad is going back in time for a very good reason. Due to huge popular demand we are bringing back a film that rocked you to your core and made you ask for more.

Bohemian Rhapsody

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY returns to The Broad for a return engagement complete with our special surprise gift from its first run. We will be playing Queen’s entire Live Aid set in front of each screening, so show up extra early to see the real Freddie Mercury tear down Wembley Stadium.

We are less than 48 hours away from Thanksgiving here at The Broad and it is time to unleash the big guns, two gloriously crowd pleasing films that pair perfectly with Mom’s stuffing and Uncle Marc’s questionable takes on the midterms.

CREED II is the sequel to one of the most unexpectedly classic films of the decade. We didn’t know then in 2015 that director Ryan Coogler would take over the world with Black Panther when he resurrected the Rocky franchise and placed it into the hands of Michael B. Jordan. Handing things off to new director Steven Caple Jr., this film is both a sequel to Creed and the immortal ’80s classic Rocky IV. Come for Adonis Creed, but stay to find out what happened to Ivan Drago and his family.

My parents taught me the importance of strong work ethic, academic achievement and service to the community. I now employ those lessons in working every day with our staff and citizens of this great city to ensure that they have access to justice at the Clerk of Civil District Court’s Office.

I graduated from Ben Franklin High School and UNO, earning my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Political Science and Loyola University College where I received my Law Degree.

Omar K. Mason, Candidate for Civil District Court Judge

Every six years, the citizens in New Orleans are faced with a critical question – who deserves to be elected judge of Civil District Court? Unfortunately, due to the untimely death of Judge Clare Jupiter, the voters of Orleans Parish must answer this important question earlier than expected. As the legal community mourns the passing of a terrific colleague, friend, and judge, the citizens of Orleans Parish are reminded of the significance of who will be granted the opportunity to serve our community for the remaining two years of Judge Jupiter’s term.

Dear New Orleans Voters,

My name is Austin Badon and I am running to be your next First City Clerk of Court. The reasons why are fairly simple: I love helping people, I am willing to work hard to improve our community, and I firmly believe your family and mine should have access to the justice system in a manner that is efficient, cost-effective and easy.

The Clerk of First City Court is an administrative position, and most of you know this office as the door to the “people’s court” or First City Court where four Judges you elect hear small business and personal claims.

When this office is run right, our city works better. When our basic disagreements as citizens are resolved quickly, there is no need for “street justice”. Quite simply, we’re all safer. Continue reading »

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.

For the rest, this comedy promises to be a great kickoff to fall with plenty of laughs in store.

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 »
