Showtimes

I know March and April are busy months and everyone's burnt out with all these fests, special screenings, awards shows, not to mention their own productions to work on. But ignore all those very good and common reasons I just listed and come check this out anyway. Two Women (1960) starring Sophia Loren, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Raf Vallone, directed by Vittorio De Sica, on the big screen, in Italian with English subtitles, preceded by newsreels, cartoons and other cool stuff from 1960. This is going to be amazing. If you've never seen this masterpiece, there's never been a better time. And if you have, there's still never been a better time. Join us won't you? It's a donation based show, so please bring a few bucks for the Clinton Street Theater or don't if things are tight, just come and enjoy this classic with us.

Cesira is a beautiful widow and a successful grocery store owner in Rome. WWII is raging, and she fears for her beloved daughter, 13-year-old Rosetta, amid the daily bombings. They travel to the village where Cesira was born, where Cesira believes they will be safer. There, they are happy even as food dwindles. A young intellectual, Michele, falls in love with Cesira, who is too consumed with the well-being of her daughter and their survival to return his timid advances. As the allies advance, Cesira decides to return to Rome - and encounter the horrors of war at last. Written by jcravens42@yahoo.com
