After being closed all week to deal with flooding from the Aug. 5 storm that inundated parts of New Orleans, the Broad Theater is set to begin screenings again tonight on three of its four screens. Detroit plays at 7 p.m. and 9:50 p.m.; The Big Sick at 7:10 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.; and Girls Trip at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.

In a special edition of the theater's email newsletter, a theater spokesperson writes, "Expect a few rows of seats to not be available for the first few days, and expect all four screens to be up and running after a week or so. Our bar will be open with a limited selection of drinks and yes, the popcorn machine is working at full capacity."
