(Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, Guiseppe Tornatore, Italy 1988, 155 min., Italian w/subtitles)

Dryden Renovation Special Presentation! If you’ve ever told anyone you’re a film buff then you’ve probably heard two things: “Then you’ve been to the Dryden” and “you HAVE to see Cinema Paradiso.” Come say a two-month goodbye to the Dryden (see renovation articles pg. 1 and 12) with the full-length director’s cut of an all-time favorite film. Giuseppe Tornatore’s classic tells the story of Salvatore, a young man growing up in a provincial Sicilian village who seeks refuge at the Cinema Paradiso, working in the booth and finding a mentor in the theater’s projectionist, Alfredo.
