This theater sits back in the wealthy neighborhoods by Tulane University. It has regular movies by day and has a classic, quaint look to the theater. What really makes this theater special though is the various film series they do at odd hours. They screen...More

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
