Part of the Senior Selections Season
A successful film director returns to his rural Sicilian village after 30 years to attend the funeral of a dear friend and former mentor who advised him, all those years ago, to forsake his humble origins and move to Rome to make a life for himself.
Giuseppe Tornatore hit upon something miraculous when he wrote and directed this tale of romance, between a young man and the movies, and friendship, between the wise, wry projectionist Alfredo (Philippe Noiret) and the cheeky urchin Salvatore (Salvatore Cascio) who wiles his way into the booth. A captivating tribute to the wonder of cinema.
Senior Selections films are chosen by our Senior Volunteers, who will be on hand to welcome you and have a chat after the film.
These monthly film screenings are for audiences who are over-60. Tickets are £4 each and include tea, coffee and biscuits after the film.
