This event is hosted by Mostly Marin member Kim ("Box Office Kim" to her friends!).
Limited to just 20 participants (waitlist is enabled) come over to Point Richmond to revel in this film about film.
The beloved 1989 Italian romantic drama CINEMA PARADISO, which won both the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film as well as the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, has its Bay Area premiere at the Magick Lantern in its special 25th Anniversary - Director's Cut. Restoring nearly one hour of director Giuseppe Tornatore's footage removed from its original release, CINEMA PARADISO has been accalimed as one of the greatest films ever made by audiences and critics alike around the world. More information can be obtained at: themagicklantern.com or by calling [masked]-1404.
The box office opens 15 minutes before show time (which is 2:00 p.m.) so all people at Starbucks by 1:30 are guaranteed a ticket.
Located in "downtown" Pt. Richmond, The Magic Lantern is a cozy room - 40 seats plus beanbag chairs in the front row. The owner, a lover of film, introduces the movie and it feels like a small town experience in the good sense. Don't expect the Metreon or AMC but do expect a more intimate and meaningful movie experience.
Contact Kim (she's in the RSVP list!) or the magicklantern.com for more info.
Please Note: The matinee price is only $5 but the theater accepts only CASH!
