This is a historic cinema, a true gem. It is more than 100 years old, but, do not worry, very comfortable place. I went for a Sunday morning screening of an old movie and loved it. Good crowd too. Lovely neighborhood. Two blocks from St....More

This is such a fantastic theater. It's been around forever so it has that really nice "old school" kind of feel. It's a single screen theater, so be sure to check the website for movie times and don't show up just expecting to see the...More

I love this place so much. Single screen with great quality picture and sound. They have great concessions, and it's simply one of the most beautiful theaters I have ever been in.

The Prytania is an unspoiled theater offering some of New Orleans' most interesting movie selections. Tucked away on an uptown street near the campuses of Loyola and Tulane, the Prytania does not offer the most high-tech moviegoing experience, but it is a friendly place, not...More
