Il Cinema Ritrovato On Tour comes to The Music Hall in Portsmouth
Each summer, the Cineteca of Bologna, one of Europe’s most renowned centers for film restoration—seat of the Charlie Chaplin and Pier Paolo Pasolini archives—presents a nine-day film festival featuring restored films, early silent cinema, and director portraits. During the festival, titled Il Cinema Ritrovato (Rediscovered Cinema), more than 500 titles are presented in six cinemas and on a giant screen at a free outdoor screening in the fifteenth century Piazza Maggiore, in Bologna, which turns into a 2,000-seat open-air movie theater for the entire summer (Sotto le Stelle del Cinema). Il Cinema Ritrovato has been defined as “pure heaven for cinéphiles.”
This year, The Music Hall is partnering with UNH to bring a number of films from Il Cinema Ritrovato to New Hampshire for the first time. Il Cinema Ritrovato On Tour!
