Cinema Paradiso, The Montalbán rooftop movies
September 18, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC-7
A boy who grew up in a native Sicilian Village returns home as a famous director after receiving news about the death of an old friend. Told in a flashback, Salvatore reminiscences about his childhood and his relationship with Alfredo, a projectionist at Cinema Paradiso. Under the fatherly influence of Alfredo, Salvatore fell in love with film making, with the duo spending many hours discussing about films and Alfredo painstakingly teaching Salvatore the skills that became a stepping stone for the young boy into the world of film making. The film brings the audience through the changes in cinema and the dying trade of traditional film making, editing and screening. It also explores a young boy’s dream of leaving his little town to foray into the world outside.

If you need to use the restrooms, you can still listen to the movie in your own headphone set. Unique hand-selected musical soundtracks play on the speakers and in the headphones until the movie begins.
Our stunning rooftop will celebrate 10 years of diverse arts & entertainment in 2019 (look for some big celebrations).
We hope to see you soon, and often for an evening under the stars with Fantastic Films, Fine Food, and Friends.
