Quidam film night: Cinema Paradiso

October 12 @ 7:45 pm

Friday 12th October at 7.45pm in the Parish rooms. A showing of the beautiful, charming and multi-award winning film Cinema Paradiso, introduced by Sir Ivor Roberts, former UK Ambassador to Italy and recently retired President of Trinity College, Oxford.

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 about innocence ever made, a perfect picture of a time when the cinema was the only source of laughter and joy.” (Sunday Times)

 

“It looks lovely and is full of classic, memorable moments, including a tear-jerking finale.” (Daily Express)

 

“Utterly irresistible” (Empire magazine)
