80 Years of Cinema

This multi award-winning homage to the love of cinema tells the story of Salvatore, now a successful film director, returning home for the funeral of Alfredo, his old friend who was projectionist at the local cinema throughout his childhood. Soon memories of his first love affair with the beautiful Elena and all the high and lows that shaped his life come flooding back, as Salvatore reconnects with the community he left 30 years earlier.

Before the screening there will be a short drinks reception, with drinks courtesy of Kilty Gin and Merchant City Brewers.

This is 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.
