Mid-City's Broad Theater announced it will open The Broadside, an outdoor theater space, this week.
The Broad Theater's interior auditoriums will remain open, but The Broadside will host outdoor movies, live music, and private events, beginning on Wednesday, October 7, with the 2020 vice-presidential debate. Every ticket to the debate will give patrons the choice of a free popcorn or drink. Weather permitting (a big question mark given current events in the Gulf of Mexico), The Broadside will also feature films this weekend, including the New Orleans cult classic Down by Law and Alex Gibney's new COVID-19 documentary Totally Under Control.
The Broadside is located across the street from The Broad Theater on the other side of Toulouse Street. For more information, visit TheBroadTheater.com.
