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 »

This week is just chock full of information so we want to get you into the good stuff as soon as possible. This newsletter has SEVEN brand new film announcements so let’s get started, shall we?

BLACKkKLANSMAN is the latest Spike Lee Joint, a symbol of quality that defined 90’s cinema. His latest work brings back the energy of those early films with a message that is as timely as can be. Check it out starting this Friday.

EIGHTH GRADE, THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS, and SORRY TO BOTHER YOU all stay in the lineup for this week.

Before we begin with this week’s newsletter, we’d like to thank all of you for your understanding and patience over this past weekend. No movie theater wants to have a projector failure followed by a power outage, but any theater would want to have the support we received when it happened. If you got a rain check this weekend, please know that our rain checks have no expiration date as long as you hold onto the ticket stub. Now that we’ve said our peace, let’s talk about some movies!

THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS is the rare documentary that comes with a spoiler warning. We suggest that you watch the trailer on our website and a few reviews, but do try to stay away from any independent research as you are going to want to be surprised by what this movie reveals. Catch it this week and tell your friends as little as possible. Continue reading »

You are feeling it right now. The sudden urge to take a break from the heat and relax. This weekend, we invite you to take that break with us and catch one (or both) of our two new releases. Each one promises to be completely divorced from the reality around you.

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is the directorial debut from Boots Riley, the rapper-turned-filmmaker who’s style is getting compared favorably to filmmakers like Spike Lee and Spike Jonze. We could tell you more about the movie but the fact of the matter is this movie deserves to be seen in full, on the big screen, with as little introduction as possible. It’s good, it’s unique, it’s here this Thursday night. See it. Continue reading »

It was an incredible weekend this past week (pun intended) as Incredibles 2 proved that maybe 14 years was just the right time for a sequel. With that big movie entering its second weekend, we are doubling down with two new movies that have been highly requested.

JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM is the fifth entry in the Jurassic Park/World franchise and by now you know the formula: man messes with nature and nature messes with man much harder. The reason why we’re excited for this one is simple, that formula works really really well. Most of the gang from Jurassic World returns, and one Dr. Ian Malcolm comes back to the franchise that made him the most memeable man in the world. We’ve got two sneak previews of this film coming this Thursday and tickets are still available. Continue reading »

Do you know what we do on slow Tuesday afternoons at The Broad? We like to tell scary stories around the daiquiri machine (did you know we have a new daiquiri machine?). This week’s new film is scarier than any story the bartenders have whipped up and that’s saying quite a lot.

HEREDITARY is getting lots of comparisons to The Exorcist, and that’s high praise for fans of scary movies. Toni Colette stars in this thriller about family secrets that were best left secret. Continue reading »

This week is devoted to a certain segment of our audience base that we love dearly. This week is for the ladies. We’ve got two new movies this weekend about women who refuse to lay down and accept the status quo. Whether it’s a mom trying to save her family or a judge trying to save the Constitution, you will find some great inspiration in our picks this week.

RBG is about the Supreme Court justice who is notorious for all the right reasons. We may all be aware of the power she wields with great responsibility on the court, but this movie tells us how she got there with great respect and honesty. Continue reading »

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. This week, we have a new independent film to entertain you as well as the continuation of our hugely popular $2 Tuesday series. Read on for more details.

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 »

So how was your weekend? Saw anything good? We ended up experiencing the busiest February weekend in our history with a little movie you may have heard of called BLACK PANTHER. Between Thursday and Sunday we had 35 straight sold out screenings breaking all sorts of box office records. Demand for tickets is still outpacing anything we have ever shown at The Broad, so we have already put tickets on sale for next week on two of our four screens.

This morning the staff at The Broad woke up to a startling discovery. The entire lineup of films currently playing at the theater can now be called Oscar nominated films. Over the past twelve months we have played seven of the nine films nominated for Best Picture with four of those being played at this very moment. We even ended up playing one of the animated shorts with our free screening of REVOLTING RHYMES late last year. Continue reading »

The Hollywood Foreign Press has spoken: The Broad Theater shows the best films. Four of our pictures have 9 awards between them. THE POST opens this week, and while it was shut out at the Globes for its 6 nominations, any film combining the talent of Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep is worth the price of admission. This is the true story of The Washington Post newspaper’s struggle to publish the Pentagon Papers, which ultimately blew the lid off the government’s deception surrounding the Vietnam War.

Coincidentally enough, this week’s new release takes place in the frigid world of figure skating, so lace up your skates and let’s dig into the newsletter.

From A QUIET PASSION to WONDER WOMAN, we stuck to our guns in giving you a eclectic mix of movies in all shapes, sizes, and budgets.
