I went out to the Prytania on the St. Charles Ave. street car. The theater is well maintained, has a great concession stand, good prices, and a really excellent viewing experience. The staff was friendly and welcoming. My only regret is that i won't be here long enough to see some of the excellent upcoming festivals.

Shows film fests, current films, some of the Sundance variety, some as popular as the outlying 20-screen variety. Great owner who often shows up. People see neighbors all the time. Or come with them!

Step back in time to a one screen experience. This place has a great history and shows vintage and art films as well as current.

This is a really interesting theater. You will feel like you stepped back in time. My husband and I went there on a romantic date. This will always be a special place for us.

this is the 0nly movie theatre in new orleans left with a single screen. i an very comfortable in the prytania. it is very "old school" and reminds me of what going to the movies used to be like when i was a kid.

Love this theatre. I love that they always show "exclusive" or limited release films that no other movie theatre is showing in the city and have midnight shows and classic showing. Nice staff, better prices than any other theatre and really enjoy all the contest they have on Facebook.

This historical theater is a wonderful combination of quaint charm and high quality movie viewing. They have a vast film selection including a midnight movie series featuring cult classics and other offbeat favorites. Arrive a little early to take a look around the lobby and see the history of this great neighborhood theater.

intimate and great. I have been going here for many years. Some cutting edge, some comtempary, and not always a film. Experience this place and bring a friend.

They have some neat indie flicks and the occasional movie preview. This is one of New Orleans' best kept secrets in a gorgeous Uptown neighborhood.
