The New Orleans Film Society is looking to purchase our own outdoor screening equipment to bring cinema to every pocket of the city.
122 backers pledged $5,227 to help bring this project to life.

THANK YOU! Movies to Geaux is A-Go.

Thank you so much to all our backers for supporting this project! We're happy to report that we made our goal of $4,500. Check out our update video featuring New Orleans Film Society Board President Steve Armbruster and Treasurer Adam Marcus.

We were so thrilled by the incredible amount of community support for this project. We can't thank you enough. We have four days left and if we raise more money, we can use it to pay for screening fees, park rentals and possibly a generator! Please help us spread the word about the campaign in these last few days. Every single dollar helps. We also still have some great rewards left (we initially sold out of the hand silk-screened posters but have just added a few more to the pot). Contributing to Kickstarter is a great way to encourage your friends join the Film Society and reap all the benefits of membership (this week alone, members get access to FIVE free screenings).

We're busy gearing up for our first outdoor screening with the new equipment! NOFS teams up again with NOLA Drive-In on March 31st for the first drive-in of the season (we're returning to the parking garage on Carondelet). Stay tuned for more details. 

Thank you!

      It was my pleasure to help you out, since you have been helping Jon. Maybe some day I'll be in NOLA when you are showing a movie in the park. Best wishes on all that you do - Nancy Kieran
