“Our neighborhood theater in Gentilly has permanent lettering in the front of the marquee reading: Where Happiness Costs So Little.” –Binx Bolling, The Moviegoer
Like most American cities, movie house once dotted the urban landscape, eventually falling prey to the megaplexes. Located on Elysian Fields at Hibernia, The Pitt first welcomed patrons in 1949 with the showing of 'Strike It Rich.' Within a few years of its opening, local writer Walker Percy made it the setting for his classic, The Moviegoer. Here, Walker Percy stands in front of the theater in 1984, a decade before its closing.
