Vintage Sundays: Cinema Paradiso (PG) 30th Anniversary - Duke of York's Picturehouse - Brighton

Told in flashback as successful film director Salvatore returns to his native Sicilian village, CINEMA PARADISO centres on the friendship between the young Salvatore and the irascible projectionist Alfredo (Philippe Noiret), who preserves a collection of footage censored from the local cinema programme by the priest. Salvatore inherits from Alfredo not only a love of film, but also his job, as the Nuovo Cinema Paradiso enjoys a brief term of glory as the hub of the community before the days of TV and pop. Romantic, nostalgic, funny and exuberant, CINEMA PARADISO is all the more memorable for the winning performances by the great Philippe Noiret and ten-year-old Salvatore Cascio.Director: Giuseppe Tornatore Starring: Marco Leonardi, Philippe Noiret, Jacques Perrin Duration: 124 min
