Movie night: ‘The Spirit of the Beehive’
Tue., October 15, 2019
Movie night presents one of the “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die,” a sensitive and touching film set in Franco’s Spain in 1940: “The Spirit of the Beehive” (1973). Seven-year-old Ana and her sister Isabel live in a small Castilian village, where their father ekes out a living from his beehives. After the girls watch a screening of James Whale’s “Frankenstein” at a traveling movie theater, they decide to look for the monster themselves. Visually stunning and evocative, “The Spirit of the Beehive” was voted third-best Spanish film of all time by professional critics at the Spanish Film Centenary in 1996, and won seven first place awards at international film festivals.
Movie night is at Il Caffé, a charming Italian restaurant on a pedestrian road behind the Peón Contreras theater. Have dinner on your own at 6 to enjoy a free movie, aimed at English-speaking audiences, at 7.
Previously on Wednesdays, the weekly event is now on a Tuesday schedule.
