Revitalization Of Broad Street Continues With Opening Of Broad Theater

The Broad Theater was originally built in the 1920's.

There was a time when most neighborhoods in New Orleans had their own movie house, but they slowly disappeared and were replaced by multiplex theaters. But as everything becomes localized these days, so have options for seeing movies. The latest space to open is the Broad Theater, a four room theater house in an old Spanish colonial building in Mid-City.

In honor of the opening, owner Brian Knighten spoke about his passion for movies with NolaVie’s Brian Friedman.

The Broad Theater is located on N. Broad Street near Whole Foods and the Lafitte Greenway.
