Sippican Cinema Series to feature ‘Cinema Paradiso’

Apr 26, 2021

The Sippican Cinema Series returns from its spring hiatus with a virtual discussion on the classic film Cinema Paradiso on May 24 at 5 p.m.

Participants will join host Anne Converse for a discussion about the beloved film, which won Best Foreign Language Film at the 62nd Academy Awards in 1990.

The film, written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore, is a drama following the life of a successful film director, who discovered love and loss while running a projector at the cinema in his childhood home in Sicily.

Cinema Paradiso is available to watch on Hulu or Amazon Prime Video.

Participants are expected to watch the film on their own in order to participate in the discussion. 

New participants can email to receive the Zoom link — previous participants are already on the email list.
