The Broad Theater

New Orleans
Movie Theater

In true New Orleans fashion, the Broad Theater is open year-round except for Mardi Gras. Locals know it as a favorite place to slow down (or to stop sweating, on summer days) and catch mainstream movies… or, more likely, the experimental, classic, foreign, or cult films that too rarely find their way to theaters in the South. You don't have to buy a ticket to enjoy the fully stocked bar, complete with a happy hour and film-themed cocktails.
