This is not just a vintage cinema, it's a historical landmark, true movie lovers would love this place, it's like travelling back in time. It's located in a beautiful neighborhood so you can enjoy dinner after or before your movie. They sell popcorn, sweets, and nachos inside the cinema, not sure if they sell alcohol, I don't think so. The best movie theater in New Orleans.
Went to see a special screening of Second Act. This was my first time at this theater and I love the old school feel and authenticity it has. Oh and the movie was great! Great job JLo..
My favorite theatre in New Orleans! Trust me I'm a film student, I've seen 1704 movies, and the average is 2400 in a lifetime - I'll be there at 24. This place is great, just wish they had more than one film a week, but that's apart of being classic
Really awesome place! Will definitely choose to go here over any other major theater if they are showing a film I'm interested in! The popcorn is dope :)
One of my favorite small theatres to go to. Awesome to have a place that still shows midnight B Horror movies. Highly recommend this to any movie buff
