I’m a sucker for a late movie. I’m also a sucker for a premiere. Throw the two together and BAM! check please! And my preferred venue? Of course none other that little Uptown icon, the Prytania. Keep it in the parish, y’all!
One of my most favorite post Katrina discoveries in New Orleans actually remains the midnight show here. You see, only in recent years did the petite movie house give it a go as a late-night destination. A couple of summers ago it threw together a smattering of classics including The Shining and Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure among others, and well, it kind of stuck. Since then a healthy rotation of eventful fare has surfaced, some in high rotation; I mean, c’mon Prytania, how many times are you going to show The Room? No, I haven’t seen it, but do I really need to? I am sad to have missed Blue Velvet this round; hoping that gets another shot soon.
