Folks going to catch a movie at The Broad Theater (636 N. Broad St., 504-218-1008) in Mid-City have more dining options now that the business has launched a food program.

Chef Nick Vella, formerly of Vessel and now 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, veggie 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: A new bar on the exit-side of the theater, which will open in early November and have a craft cocktail focus.

“You can’t live on popcorn and beer alone,” Knighten says.
