Prytania Theatre, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice theater in what seemed like a quiet neighborhood. Came for an event, which I thoroughly enjoyed but felt like the theater was not quite fully on board with. No stadium seating so there may be a few heads in the way of your view. But it's BYOB!

  • This has always been a dream of mine. To have a local movie theater where you still feel like it has the magic you saw as a kid. It's nostalgia and unique events make this a place I will always remember. May it continue always.

  • Great theater with a wonderful history and a vintage feel inside. We saw an Alfred Hitchcock classic and it was great! There is balcony seating which is unique and we had an announcer who gave film details before our film began. The tickets were reasonably priced at about $6 and there were coffee, soda, popcorn, and other concessions available.

  • Greatest movie theater of all time. Single screen, old school feel. In the heart of uptown new orleans. Always special showings. It's just the coolest

  • One of the only old school theatres left in the state. Really cool place and it's the same picture quality as a new theater.
