FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE ITALIAN CINEMA RETURNS TO THE
ITALIAN CULTURAL CENTER OF WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS
The Italian Cultural Center of Western Massachusetts wishes to announce that we are showing our firs fall movie of 2019 of our ‘Friday Night at the Italian Cinema’ celebration of Italian movies with the 1963 film, 8 ½ by Director Federico Fellini. It will be shown on Friday, September 6 at the ICC located at 56 Margaret Street, Springfield. It is in Italian with English subtitles.
8½ is a 1963 surrealist comedy-drama film directed by Federico Fellini. It stars Marcello Mastroianni as Guido Anselmi, a famous Italian film director who suffers from stifled creativity as he attempts to direct an epic science fiction film. Acknowledged as an avant-garde film and a highly influential classic, it was among the top 10 on British Film Institute’s The Top 50 Greatest Films of All Time, ranked third in a 2002 poll of film directors conducted by the British Film Institute and is also listed on the Vatican's compilation of the 45 best films made before 1995, the 100th anniversary of cinema. It is now considered to be one of the greatest films of all time.
The doors will open at 6:00 and the movie will start at 6:30. The suggested donation is $3 for members and $6 for non-members. As part of your movie experience, you will have a choice of beverage and a snack.
