The 12th Anniversary Celebration of The Rosendale Theatre Collective featuring Cinema Paradiso

August 19 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Join us as we celebrate the 12th anniversary of The Rosendale Theatre being operated by the mostly volunteer-led Rosendale Theatre Collective. There will be music by The Rosendale Improvement Brass Band and Social Club, a sweet treat and a toast. This will be followed by the film, Cinema Paradiso.

About the Film:
In this beloved tribute to the life-changing power of cinema, the young Toto finds a second home at his small village’s theater and befriends the aging projectionist, Alfredo (Phillipe Noiret), in post-war Italy. Toto grows up in the projection booth, observes the censorious regime dictated by the local priest, and witnesses the awesome destructive potential of nitrate cellulose first-hand. An Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film, CINEMA PARADISO played at some American theaters for a year straight on its initial release, so strong was its universal evocation of childhood enlivened and expanded by the movies.

PG | Drama/ Romance/ Italian with subtitles | 2 hr 35 min
