Members’ Cine Club – Cinema Paradiso

Another Oscar-winning movie on the big screen


Barn Cine Club


The February film will be Cinema Paradiso.

At our screening of Dr No on 22nd February the audience was given a choice of selecting either Stephen Spielberg’s The Duel or Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso. The latter won the vote conclusively.

This is a delightful movie which won the Special Jury Prize at Cannes 1988 and the Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film in 1989. It was an international success and well worth seeing on the BIG SCREEN as it’s a tribute to the cinema. It appears in Empire Magazine’s ‘100 best films of world cinema’ and here’s what they had to say:

“Forget the Aeolian islands of Il Postino, forget Life Is Beautiful‘s Arezzo: the perfect Italian-set love story takes place in a cramped projection booth in a Sicilian cinema, and there isn’t a buxom brunette anywhere in sight (well, downstairs maybe). Cinema Paradiso has charm, and wit, to melt the chilliest heart. The blossoming friendship of young tyke Salvatore and grumpy projectionist Alfredo will surely entrance anyone not won over by crosseyed priests and eccentric villagers, while the final kissing montage will devastate the hardest of hearts, and remind you why you love cinema in the first place.”

Don’t miss it – it’s an absolute treat!

Running time: 155 minutes.


Admission is free to members of the Barn.
