This April has felt like Summer, Spring, and Fall are all duking it out for weather supremacy. One of the great joys of going to the movies however has always been the joy of 72 degrees no matter what month it is.

FOXTROT comes to us from Israeli filmmaker Samuel Maoz, whose previous film Lebanon was one of the most acclaimed films of 2009. This new film takes us into a world of grief and war with spellbinding visuals and a strength of vision that you won’t find in many filmmakers. Continue reading »

April is on the way, and with it comes our personal busy season of special events. We have concert films, sing-a-longs, $2 Tuesdays, and even a Film Festival all lined up next month. It is a veritable smorgasbord of cinema-related events. We kick things off this week with two special events and a brand new film added to our lineup.

TYLER PERRY’S ACRIMONY is led by Taraji P. Henson, who just might be one of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars. You all saw her incredible performance as Katherine Johnson in HIDDEN FIGURES, and she has fed off that success to lead a number of films in 2018 including this latest film from Tyler Perry. If you’re looking for a nice thriller to spice up your weekend, we think this is the one. Continue reading »

Dear New Orleans Voters,

I am seeking to continue serving our great city as a Judge of Civil District Court. I offer my experience, knowledge, efficiency and integrity to demonstrate to you that I have the work ethic and experience to run Division “A” effectively. I am committed to fairness, service and justice for our community.

I was born in New Orleans and am a proud graduate of Xavier University of Louisiana and Tulane University School of Law. I attended both universities on academic scholarships and also worked to support myself.

My legal experience is broad and diverse. I started my law practice by passing the California State Bar and practicing insurance defense litigation. Because my heart was still at home in New Orleans, I returned, passed the Louisiana State Bar and began practicing as a plaintiff’s attorney. Continue reading »

We even ended up playing one of the animated shorts with our free screening of REVOLTING RHYMES late last year. Continue reading »
