I love going out to see a movie in a theater, and I plan to do so again when things eventually get back to normal once this pandemic subsides. Right now, however, the New Orleans Film Society has come up with a great way to access independent cinema.
NOFS Home Theater will present a new title every Thursday for the following month, and each film will be available to stream for two weeks. A portion of the proceeds from your virtual ticket will help support NOFS.
Currently streaming, now through April 30 is:
