Hang out with the Historic New Orleans Collection virtually this weekend during #NolaMovieNight. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the museum's feature presentation on Friday, December 11 at 7 p.m.
The 2008 Academy Award-winning film stars Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, and Taraji P. Henson, and was filmed in New Orleans just after Hurricane Katrina. Look out for scenes of the Garden District, Audubon Park, City Park, and the lakefront.
The social-media-driven series rewatches New Orleans-set or New Orleans-shot film. "Our staff experts will be joined by guest rewatchers to provide historical context, location-spotting, behind-the-scenes tidbits, accent critiques, and lots of participatory fun."
Viewers can share their thoughts and observations via Twitter by using the hashtag #NolaMovieNight. For more information on the series and ways to stream Friday's movie, head to the Historic New Orleans Collection's website.
