Landmark no longer operates this theater. It is now under the management of Southern Theatres which will be re-opening it on May 26 as the Theatres at Canal Place; the number of screens will now be five, and patrons must be over 18, due to the addition of bar and café service. In addition, the floor plan has been changed, the projection will be digital, the seats have been upgraded and the rows now better spaced. Story here: View link

My Sister used to go there(before she moved…before 2010) the type of theater it was she said to me once was “people could smoke at one time” and it was “Alternitive or Indie-like” she has not been to it after 2010 so has no comment. I however never went untill 2012. I saw Moonrise Kingdom there. It was nothing like what my sister said. Instead I could order a plate of hummus and bread, min water. people that would guid me personaly to my seat (witch i could reserve in advance) and to the Restroom (not johns or lu’s the place is too high end maybe Powerroom)I love it but would be able to see every movie there because of cost (parking $15, ticket $12 and then food (prices ranging from 6 dollars(candy) to 19 dollars food. Win and alchol are serve for patrines over 21.

every time i’ve ever been to this theater, i vow to never go back. unfortunately, it’s the easiest theater in the new orleans metro area for me to get to. before the renovations of the last few years, accommodations were fairly sparse and uncomfortable, but it was the only local theater where one could see indie/arthouse/foreign flicks. since the renovations, seating is a lot more comfortable, but there are problems. programming is about a 50/50 split between indie stuff and mainstream hollywood blockbusters. the highly touted fine-dining atmosphere comes with issues. ticket prices are very steep compared to other theaters. there is no longer a concession stand, so all food and beverage sales are handled by a wait staff; this means that there is a constant parade of people walking through the aisles and in front of the screen during the feature. moreover, in the dozens of times i have been to this theater, not once has my food/drink order come without a hitch: they bring me the wrong order, or bring my order to another patron, or forget to bring the entire order. on one occasion, they never brought my order to me at all, and i had to demand my money back after the movie was over. don’t get me wrong, the accommodations are very nice, but if this is the price i have to pay for comfortable seating, i’d much rather go to a sticky-floored grindhouse.

Summary of status:

NO MINORS, PERIOD because of alcohol permits. Independent and arthouse flicks shown. Moderately expensive.

Regal Theatres took on this venue in 2017 from Southern Circuit and rebranded it as the Cinebarre Canal Place 9. But the theatre’s dine-in concept proved challenging and Regal closed it on May 23, 2019.
