The Friends of The Kentucky Theatre invites you to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Kentucky Theatre’s re-opening at a fundraiser inspired by the Oscar-winning film, CINEMA PARADISO. Doors open at 6:00p.m., film starts @ 7:00 p.m.
PIZZA, WINE, LIVE MUSIC, DOOR PRIZES, AND A GREAT FILM!!!!!
Come “mangia” Italian-style with pizza donated by Papa John’s. Sip red wine and let strolling accordionists, The Dischordions, transport you to a little town in Sicily. Then settle in for a movie that will, if it hasn’t already, win your heart.
After the movie, cross your fingers for a chance to win one of three special door prizes. And on your way out of the theatre, look for a sweet treat in the spirit of the movie’s famous kissing scenes.
All proceeds from this event will go toward on-going capital improvements of The Kentucky Theatre.
Set in Sicily, Cinema Paradiso is the heartwarming story of a young boy’s lifelong love affair with the movies. Salvatore is enchanted by the flickering images at the Cinema Paradiso. When the projectionist, Alfredo, takes him under his wing, a deep friendship is born. As a young man, Salvatore leaves the village to pursue his dream of making movies. Thirty years later, he receives a message that calls him back home to discover a poignant gift.
TICKET PRICE: $25 per person/$40 for two people. Reception starts @ 6:00
