Rotten Tomatoes – 80-percent FRESH!  (click here)













From acclaimed director Matteo Garrone, REALITY is a darkly comic look at Luciano, a charming and affable fishmonger whose unexpected and sudden obsession with being a contestant on the reality show "Big Brother" leads him down a rabbit hole of skewed perceptions and paranoia. So overcome by his dream of being on reality TV, Luciano's own reality begins to spiral out of control, making for one of the most compelling tragicomic character studies since Scorsese's The King of Comedy.

Early Dinner

Lets meet shortly after 5 p.m. for an early dinner in the Art Museum Atrium just outside the Provenance Café. You may arrive when convenient and join the group for a burger, salad or just coffee.  It is advisable to purchase/pick-up your film tickets first.

The Cleveland Museum of Art presents Provenance Café through a partnership between the museum, Bon Appétit Management Company, and celebrated chef Douglas Katz.

Provenance Café offers lunch, dinner, and snack options with an open kitchen concept where patrons can watch as chefs create their dishes. Open Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.






The name “Provenance” was inspired by the same term, which is derived from the French “provenir,” meaning “to come from.” The word provenance often refers to the chronology of ownership of a historical object or work of art. It also can be used when describing the origin of food, particularly food from local sources. Provenance, Provenance Café, and Catering by Provenance marry the concept of locally sourced foods with the lineages of nearly 45,000 objects in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s collection.

We have costs associated with being on that we ask you to assist with.  Our nominal $5 annual membership fee goes toward the charges and other related administrative expenses.  Organizers are not compensated and contribute their time simply for the love of the art of film and your friendship.  Please be current on those fees.  You may use a credit card through the PayPal link in the left margin of our home page or pay the organizer in cash at your next event.

“Members of Music Cleveland! who have paid their annual $10 fee will have dues waiver for Ciné Arts Cleveland! What a deal – a twofer!”


Ciné Arts Cleveland! is Theater & Performance Art · Art · Classic Films · Italian Film · Irish Film · Cinema and Films · British Film · Art House Film · Film Festivals · Foreign Films · Movies/Dinner · Independent Film · Arts and Entertainment · Books and Movies Discussions/Good Food!
