The Broad Theater now serves food 

Mid-City movie theater adds small menu


Folks catching a movie at The Broad Theater (636 N. Broad St., 504-218-1008; in Mid-City have more dining options now that the movie house has launched a food program.

  Chef Nick Vella, formerly of Vessel NOLA and currently a chef at Revel Cafe & Bar, designed the menu at the Broad Street theater.

  "I always wanted to do pizza, like slices and beer, but that was difficult without gas or a hood," theater owner Brian Knighten says. Instead, Vella created a menu of baked strombolis, including four iterations of the Italian-American favorite: pepperoni, pulled pork, vegetable and a Cuban version.

  A cold grab-and-go menu includes wraps, salads, hummus and chips and vegetables, and "adult lunchables" — charcuterie, cheese and fruit plates.

  Also in the works is a new bar on the exit side of the theater. The bar is expected to open in early November and have a craft cocktail focus.

  "You can't live on popcorn and beer alone," Knighten says.
