A Vacation from Ordinary Film.
As this film is nominated for 4 Oscars, and many of our patrons did not get to see it, Cinema Paradiso brings it back to the big screen.
In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.ppb On Wednesday Feb 6th, following the 6pm screening, stick around for a free showing of "THE MAKING OF BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD..a 20 minute behind the scenes peek at this incredible film.
