One of the things we take pride in at The Broad is keeping a fresh supply of new movies rolling in each and every week. Some weeks, however, we are so thrilled with our offerings that it makes the best sense to keep on keeping on with our lineup as is. This Week at The Broad is all about enjoying the things in life we already have.

This is it! The weekend that kicks off what we all lovingly call the holiday season. The two months between Halloween and New Years are filled with candy and family and overeating candy and avoiding family. It’s also the time of the year when the film studios pump out award contenders and their most crowd-pleasing entertainment offerings, and this week we are proud to present one from each of those categories.

If you are like us, you might have a few copies of Blade Runner in your DVD rack. Released in 1982, it slowly became a classic that changed sci-fi in cinema forever. This week brings forth the sequel that many dreaded for years. But rather than the unnecessary cash-in feared by many, it appears that this film is destined to become just as revered as the original.

Last weekend brought many of you back to the theater for the first time since our little issue with the weather. It was truly humbling to see the theaters at capacity and all of your photos of our little red balloons that we snuck around the place. We hope you enjoyed our lineup last weekend and we think you’ll enjoy the three new movies that we have for you this weekend.

Before we get into this week’s announcements we’d like to take a moment to send our love and support to all of those in Texas and Louisiana being affected by Hurricane Harvey. This city knows all too well what a storm can do to a community, and we stand side by side with those who once helped us when we needed it. To aid in the recovery process, we are opening in our lobby a drop off station for supplies to be sent to Houston. Now let’s get to our new releases.

When the Louisiana Architectural Foundation decided to bring the 9th annual Architecture & Design Film Festival to New Orleans, foundation director Stacey Pfingsten knew that the festival must include the world premiere of “Designing Life: The Organic Modernism of Albert C. Ledner.”

The nation’s largest film festival devoted to architecture and design, the ADFF “celebrates the creative spirit behind many of the world’s most innovative architecture and design projects and the larger-than-life personalities who create them.” Ledner, a spry 93-year old native New Orleanian who still practices his craft, certainly fits the bill.

We absolutely love it when our guests get excited for a movie. The emails and Facebook messages start coming in from all corners of the city and the phone starts going off the hook with the same requests. The truth is, we wanted to show this movie just as much as you want us to. After a bunch of work behind the scenes, we are happy to talk about our next film.

This week we have a most strange and unusual situation. Our biggest movie is opening on a Wednesday instead of Friday. This gives us five glorious days to play whatever the heck we want, so we have two films for you to check out in limited release.

Remember when you were a kid and your idea of fun was a cardboard tube? You can turn it into a baseball bat, a lightsaber, or even a makeshift telescope in search of buried treasure. With Memorial Day on the horizon, we want you to find your inner kid as we’re going to set our sails on a high-sea journey for adventure!

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 »

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.

Every week, we learn more and more from you about what you want to see here at The Broad. Take for instance PATERSON. Did we know that some people wanted to see it? Sure, that’s why we went after it. But we did not expect it to do the crazy numbers that it did, so we have no problem bringing it back for another week.

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 »
