“I love this theatre”
Review of Prytania Theatre

Prytania Theatre
Ranked #144 of 381 things to do in 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 by the owner of the theatre before the movie. Not many people plan to go to the movies during a vacation, but it's a nice way to spend a midweek afternoon.

One of the best places to watch a movie in New Orleans and the best to watch classic or late night movies. There is only one screen here so check their website for showings. It doesn’t offer the multiple screens or stadium seating of modern cinemas, but it does offer a slice of nostalgia that makes the movie going experience more than just sitting down and looking at a screen for two hours. Save the blockbusters for the modern world and come here for a classic screening or a late night camp film.
