Saturday Matinee Classics: BICYCLE THIEVES
Every second Saturday of the month experience a different legendary cinematic masterpiece the way it should be seen – on the big screen! Each presentation is $8 general admission and $5 for Enzian Film Society members. So sit back, relax, and let the magic of movies take you away. Lunch will be available for purchase inside the theater or outside at Eden Bar.
Hailed around the world as one of the greatest movies ever made, Vittorio De Sica’s Academy Award-winning Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette) defined an era in cinema. In postwar, poverty-stricken Rome, a man, hoping to support his desperate family with a new job, loses his bicycle, his main means of transportation for work. With his wide-eyed young son in tow, he sets off to track down the thief. Simple in construction and dazzlingly rich in human insight, Bicycle Thieves embodied all the greatest strengths of the neorealist film movement in Italy: emotional clarity, social righteousness, and brutal honesty.
