The Vitascope

French Quarter, New Orleans

Experience a piece of history with a stay at The Vitascope. In 1896, this building debuted as the world’s first-ever movie theater. Now, a bright red door and an art-filled hallway decorate the entrance. Your private apartment includes in-suite laundry, a fully equipped kitchen, and expansive windows allowing light to pour through. Outside, Canal Street is bustling with quaint shops and famed Cajun-Creole restaurants. We can’t get enough of the charbroiled oysters from Creole House — freshly shucked and topped with garlic butter and parmesan. Follow the sound of jazz music to Bourbon Street, where lively bars promise potent libations. Enjoy New Orleans’ historical past at The Vitascope.
