I will be visiting New Orleans in 2 weeks and plan on staying at the Royal Street Courtyard bed and breakfast. I have a few things unique to New Orleans planned but during my stay I also would like to check out a movie one night. Are there any movie theaters in the area? If not what is the best method of transportation to get to the nearest theater? Looking to see Inception with some friends while we are there.

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

The Theatres at Canal Place is the closest.
The next closest would be AMC Clearview Palace 12 Metairie, LA 70006 | AMC Movie Theaters

Movie tickets in the NOLA area run $10-$13
Your best bet would be to take a cab if you're heading to the suburban theaters and keep a number so that you can call for a ride back into the city. You could always take the RTA bus, but you'd have to transfer to a JET bus somewhere along the way.

Does the Canal Place show recent films? I heard of that place before but when I looked it up on one site it made it sound like a performace theater.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Inception is comming to the Prytania theatre, but I don't know when it starts. The Prytania is a one screen theatere located Uptown just off the Streetcar line.

There is also an IMAX screen at the Aquarium of the Americas.
I think one of those theaters on Canal DOES play midnight movie
type fare. Seriously though, unless I wsa there for more than a
week, a movie would be a bad idea...for me.
