With a little help from the New Orleans Film Society, the Contemporary Arts Center shows the kinds of independent films that you won’t find anywhere else in The Big Easy. Located in a huge red brick building in the Downtown Arts District, the multidisciplinary CAC has two theaters, art galleries, a free cybercaf√©, and more. The CAC mounts regular exhibitions of art by local artists and hosts the Music of New Orleans concert series, which was begun not long after Hurricane Katrina as a way to give NOLA’s musicians a safe and open place to begin performing again.
