Zeitgeist Space To Move Location After Mardi Gras

By: Emilia DiFabrizio

After Mardi Gras, the Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center, a movie and alternative arts space, will move to Arabi from the former location of the Valiant Theatre and Lounge at 6621 St. Claude Ave. Founder Rene Broussard has hosted the theater in several locations over it’s 32 years in business. The relocation will allow for a new theater space with 125 seats, a small kitchen for pop-ups, and a separate lounge for live music, comedy, and more. There will be an introduction of matinee screenings in its new space as well, a first for the venue. Zeitgeist’s new building is owned by the Meraux Foundation which is developing an arts district in the surrounding area. The Zeitgeist intends on continuing to screen films through February 21 at 1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. until its move. The first concert at the new space will be by the Neslort Orchestra on March 7, and the first film screenings will be “Lords of Chaos,” a feature film based on the controversial black metal band Mayhem, and “Smaller and Smaller Circles,” a thriller about a serial killer in the slums of Manilla in the Philippines.
