    Having opened in 1915, The Prytania Theatre is the oldest operating theatre in New Orleans and the only single-screen movie theatre in Louisiana. In a single day, it may play anything from a huge Hollywood blockbuster, to an indie film, to a local documentary, to a seasonal film, to a cult classic. It’s an independent theatre house with a strong community of supporters, so it can do whatever it wants, and it does, which is why so many love it.

    The Prytania prides itself on being one of the only remaining privately-own theater in the city. So if you're fine sitting with crazy college kids, or are one yourself, catch a classic midnight movie, Rocky Horror Picture Show, or a first-run flick. If you can manage the stairs, the balcony has a great view.

    You don't go here for great sound or for the elevated seats, but for the experience of an old timing new orleans movie theater. the floors are sticky and people talk, but the feeling of an old theater is fun once in awhile.
