Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso opens its doors at The Frida, in honor of Morricone March.

Young Salvatore Di Vita (Salvatore Cascio) discovers the perfect escape from life in his war-torn Sicilian village: the Cinema Paradiso movie house, where projectionist Alfredo (Philippe Noiret) instills in the boy a deep love of films. When Salvatore grows up, falls in love with a beautiful local girl (Agnese Nano) and takes over as the Paradiso’s projectionist, Alfredo must convince Salvatore to leave his small town and pursue his passion for filmmaking.

One of the finest films ever made about cinema itself, Cinema Paradiso is a heartrending masterpiece in the coming-of-age canon.

Cinema Paradiso screens starting Friday, March 29th.
Friday, Mar 29th – 6:15pm, 9:30pm
Saturday, Mar 30th – 8pm
