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.

We feel it, too. It’s COLD outside. The new year has brought in some frigid air, so we’ve turned on the heater to bring you the warm fuzzies while you enjoy our lineup this week. 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.

First things first, if you got a Broad Theater gift card in your stocking this week then congrats on being given the gift of cinema! Your new card never expires and can be used for anything at the theater from tickets to cocktails to some of our awesome new food items available every weekend.

As we look back on this past year, we’d like to focus on the things that made us happy. Nothing of course makes us happy more than good movies and we think we ended up showing a healthy number of them. 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.

The rest of this newsletter will not be in rhyme, but continue reading and you’re sure to have a good time.

First, a confession: the writer of this weekly newsletter is huge Star Wars fan. Two years ago, prior to the opening of our theater, he spent 20 hours at the multiplex watching all seven films in a row and swore that Episode 8 would play at The Broad where he would watch it then. That promise is fulfilled this Thursday as we open our doors for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.

This weekend we picked up our trademarked hot pink Christmas tree and plopped it down in the lobby with merriment and good cheer. The holiday season is in full swing and as the number of shopping days dwindle down, the number of Oscar contenders and blockbusters go up. We’ve got one big movie opening this weekend with another movie you might have heard of coming up next Thursday.

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.

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.

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.
