Thinking about New Orleans: Movies

Hello again ARLISians,

Today’s fun Friday post — to help you think “New Orleans is a must” for the February 5-9, 2017 ARLIS-NA Conference — is about movies. Whether you stream them via Netflix, Hulu, or another source, or check out the DVD from a library, these movies and one television series — using New Orleans as a central character — are very easy to locate.

Now, go start your popcorn and get ready for the weekend!
