This Week at The Broad: Spring Cleaning

Sponsored by
This week, we’ve decided to do a little sprucing up with our film lineup and give you not just one new film, or two new films, but THREE NEW FILMS all on the same day. This Friday we have three new releases that run the gamut from family friendly big-budget fare, to a return from a filmmaker who made the most critically acclaimed film ever shot in Louisiana. ONWARD is the latest Pixar joint, and we don’t have to remind you of their track record. This movie takes the trope of children dealing with the loss of a parent and turns in on its head with excellent results. Add in some fantasy D&D elements and you’ve got something for kids and the parents who still remember where their D20 is at.

This week brings both Valentine’s Day and a slew of Mardi Gras parades to our fair city, and we get it, you have a lot of entertainment options to choose from. Might we offer a humble suggestion? Nobody is going to spray paint their spot in our theater, and our ladders are stored far away from your eye lines. And while we don’t have any shoes to hand out, we do have a fabulous new release and a returning favorite for you to watch this weekend. THE PHOTOGRAPH opens on Valentine’s Day, and there is no better weekend to catch it.

Do you believe in second chances? We do. This weekend, we are bringing back what we consider the best film to not get nominated for Best Picture so that you can judge for yourself. Did it deserve the slight or should it have gotten the 10th spot on the Oscar shortlist? UNCUT GEMS?returns on a limited schedule this weekend.

Last week was a crazy one, eh? After a nice downpour on Wednesday, we stayed closed until Sunday to make sure Barry didn’t rain too hard on our parade. We’re happy to be open again with two new movies to share including a big one involving some big cats. THE LION KING is a new look on a ’90s classic. The new cast is a who’s who of A-List talent led by Donald Glover, Beyoncé, and James Earl Jones reprising the role of Mufasa because nobody can fill those paws.

What’s your favorite zombie movie? The beauty about the zombie movie is that it’s a genre that can seamlessly morph into other genres with ease. You’ve had zombie rom-coms, zombie musicals, zombie mockumentaries, and you even have zombie adaptations of selected works of Shakespeare. This week, we invite you to check out a zombie movie by a legend of independent cinema. THE DEAD DON’T DIE is the newest work from director?Jim Jarmusch, a man much more known for dry humor than blood and guts.

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May showers bring? If you’re The Broad Theater, then it means you take the great lineup you had the previous week, add a touch of action to the mix, and give everyone the chance to see what they might have missed. This week is a jumbo-stuffed mix of cinema full of jazz, poetry, Pokemon, and a man who just can’t get over his puppy. ?
JOHN WICK CHAPTER 3 – PARABELLUM may be a bit of a wordy title but the film itself is all action. The next installment of this franchise has critics going gaga, a rare thing for the third entry of any series.

This week, The Broad is going back in time for a very good reason. Due to huge popular demand we are bringing back a film that rocked you to your core and made you ask for more. BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY returns to The Broad for a return engagement complete with our special surprise gift from its first run. We will be playing Queen’s entire Live Aid set in front of each screening, so show up extra early to see the real Freddie Mercury tear down Wembley Stadium.

We are less than 48 hours away from Thanksgiving here at The Broad and it is time to unleash the big guns, two gloriously crowd pleasing films that pair perfectly with Mom’s stuffing and Uncle Marc’s questionable takes on the midterms.

CREED II is the sequel to one of the most unexpectedly classic films of the decade. We didn’t know then in 2015 that director Ryan Coogler would take over the world with Black Panther when he resurrected the Rocky franchise and placed it into the hands of Michael B. Jordan. Handing things off to new director Steven Caple Jr., this film is both a sequel to Creed and the immortal ’80s classic Rocky IV. Come for Adonis Creed, but stay to find out what happened to Ivan Drago and his family. RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET continues the story of Ralph and his friend Vanellope von Schweetz as they enter the World Wide Web in search of a replacement part to fix Vanellope’s arcade machine.

So they say fall is here and yet from our location on North Broad it looks increasingly like the anti-groundhog has promised us six more weeks of summer. The fall movie season however is just days away as award contenders make their way from the festivals up north to the cinemas down south. This week’s new release is a true pleasure, no guilt required. NIGHT SCHOOL stars the breakout star from Girl’s Trip, Tiffany Haddish, along with one of America’s most popular comedians, Kevin Hart. For most of you, we don’t need to tell you any more about this movie, these two folks are just that likable.
