This Week at The Broad, we’ve got two new films and a slew of special events to go over so let’s get straight to the run down, shall we?

T2: TRAINSPOTTING is the long awaited sequel to one of the outright classic independent films of the 90’s. Rather than the typical overdue sequel that forgets what made the original so amazing, this is a mature sequel that brings back the characters you love (led by a still-mesmerizing Ewan McGregor) with something to say about the passage of time. 20 years may have passed, but Danny Boyle and crew still know how to crank out a classic.

In the somewhat lean film landscape in April, it is our mission to bring you the type of film screenings that you used to always read about happening in other cities. $2 Tuesday continues next week with the immortal martial arts classic BLOODSPORT. If you agree with us that all films are better with Jean-Claude Van Damme in them, then we expect to see you next Tuesday evening. $2 drink specials will be served as well for your responsible enjoyment.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, GET OUT, RAW, and GHOST IN THE SHELL all remain at our theater this week. We are excited to keep our entire lineup on screen so that you don’t have to miss out on one of the most eclectic collection of films you’ll find in any movie theater in this state. Continue reading »

I have 25 years as a successful trial lawyer in Orleans Parish and other state and federal courts. In my legal career, I have been a champion for the voiceless and vulnerable, for victims of domestic violence, human trafficking and housing discrimination. Continue reading »

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.

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. Continue reading »
