Join us September 24th, 2016, at the historic Castro Theatre! Cinema Italia San Francisco brings back to the big screen four of the most acclaimed movies of Nannarella in 35mm! The special series will engage the audience in a one-day cinematic adventure with the Diva of Italian Cinema. The day begins with Roberto Rossellini’s neorealist war drama ROME OPEN CITY. This is followed by Luchino Visconti’s satirical spin on the movie industry – BELLISSIMA. The evening’s Spotlight Film is Daniel Mann’s THE ROSE TATTOO, the celebrated adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ play that garnered three Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Magnani, who also won a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for this memorable English-language role. A vivacious Roman- and Louisiana-styled party will follow the screening. The series will conclude with Mario Monicelli’s THE PASSIONATE THIEF, a comedic adaptation of two novels by Alberto Moravia, starring Magnani and Totò.
