Originally a church, the Marigny Opera House has become a sanctuary of performance in its new life. On Sunday (Jan. 12), Shotgun Cinema will add movie screenings to the cultural mix under the St. Ferdinand St. steeple. The fledgling film-focused nonprofit is set for a screening of Wong Kar-Wai's early-millenium landmark, In the Mood for Love. With the new endeavor, Angela Catalano and Travis Bird hope to provide a home for local film culture.
Hollywood South Film Review: Ender's Game
The novel Ender’s Game was mana for many of us who had troubled middle schools, but Gavin Hood’s adaptation succeeds as a slick, competent actioner any dull bob can enjoy. That’s definitely better news than surrounded the film prior to its release. But Ender’s Game embraces a pounding score and lens flare over the more complex objectives of friendship and cultural prejudice.

'Tchoupitoulas' Turning Heads at SXSW
Bands and Bounce artists are showing the hordes at SXSW what it's like to be inside a club, but it was left to film to give a glimpse of New Orleans' after-dark street life. A NOLA-set film that premiered over the weekend in Austin is already picking up some buzz for its unique take on our nocturnal ways through the eyes of a pair of young brothers. Still, the movie's commercial chances were immediately thrown into question as filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross chose to the name the piece after that street that no tourist can pronounce: Tchoupitoulas. The LA Times saw the film. So did Unicorn Booty.

With epics long enough to make a second large bag of ultra-butter popcorn sound good, the American movie industry seems to have lost its knack for brevity. But short films are still out there, and some are even well-crafted enough to catch the attention of the academy. For its second year, the Prytania Theater will screen the Live Action and Animated short films that were nominated for Oscars. Screenings run today through Thursday, Feb. 17.
