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.

A true hidden treasure in Nola, the prytania is my favorite! From the midnight movies to the mere smell of the building, it's like stepping back in time. Long live the prytania!

Excellent choice of movies, mature (emotionally, not necessarily chronologically) clientele, easy access, fun!

This is a wonderful privately owned movie house that is a throw-back to the 50's and 60's. Was featured in the wonderful New Orleans novel, A Confederacy of Dunces". Located in a safe pretty section of uptown New Orleans.

It's old and classic. It's the kind of theatre the patrons ran out of when the Blob was coming through the vents. Just one screen, one ticket taker and a balcony that you can actually sit in. If you can catch one of the daytime classic showings, you'll be treated to coffee and cake after the movie, and a dissertation... More
