The Little Italy Open-Air Film Festival will wrap up another stellar season on Friday with their traditional final screening, "Cinema Paradiso," Giuseppe Tornatore's 1989 film about the memories of a middle-aged man who fell in love with the movies in a small town in Italy.
One of the most charming scenes in the film is when an audience gasps in wonder as a movie is projected on an outside screen; the Little Italy festival provides a magical opportunity to experience the wonder firsthand. The film will begin at 9 p.m. at the corner of High and Stiles streets. Admission is free, and viewers are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs.
Congratulations to the Little Italy Restaurant Association (LIRA), the members of the Little Italy community and the good people at the Senator Theatre for another wonderful season of one of Baltimore's most beloved cultural events.
