Cinema Sotto Le Stelle at Casa Belvedere
“Cinema Paradiso (1988)” on Tuesday, July 30, 7 to 9 pm
This summer, enjoy some special nights out under the stars, experiencing fine Italian films at Casa Belvedere on the rear patio overlooking New York Harbor. In the event of rain, the movie will be shown indoors in the second floor Galleria.
In “Cinema Paradiso,” a prominent movie director returns to his Sicilian home village for the first time in many years to attend the funeral of the town’s former film projectionist, who served as the filmmaker’s mentor when he was a young boy.
The coming-of-age dramedy film is set in a small Sicilian town. Credited with revitalizing Italy’s film industry, Cinema Paradiso has been cited as one of the greatest films of all time. The ending is considered among the greatest endings in movie history. It was a commercial success, and won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Grand Prix.
