New Orleans has no shortage of social issues or artistic expressions. In a few days locals will have the opportunity to witness the convergence of the two when Patois: New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival returns. 12 screenings will feature works that address social and civil rights.

Movie Listings for Christmas Eve & Christmas Day



Christmas is a time for gving and celebration... and movies. For those who prefer their revelry in the dark--with air conditoning, the holiday holds plenty to see.

Cruise's Krewe


Given the state of the lower quarter of the Lower Quarter, one might be forgiven for thinking they imbibed far too much on Halloween night and the last month has been a long dream. Royal Street is once again decked out with ghosts and ghouls. The retro makeover is all part of a massive movie shoot scheduled to continue through the weekend.

Today in NOLA: 6.15.15

Waving the Geek Flags: Jurassic World's JazzLand Makeover


Jurassic World managed to secure a spot in box office history after just 24 hours. The reboot of Steven Spielberg’s mid Nineties blockbusters raked in 82.8 million dollars on opening day, placing it this all time. However, locals will be more interested in the locale than the numbers. The theme park setting for the film is actually a made-over Six Flags New Orleans.
