The Re-Creative Association República 14, in Olhão, will host from next Sunday, 18th, a cycle of open-air cinema sessions.
The agenda kicks off on the 18th with Alfred Hitchcock's film "Indiscrete Window", followed by the Coen brothers' "Save Caesar" on 25 August.
The September lineup begins with Noah Baumbach's comedy Frances Ha on September 1 and Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich on the 8th.
The initiative, which includes the collaboration of the Cineclub of Faro and the support of the Directorate-General of Arts, aims to make this space “once again a place where open-air cinema can be seen on hot summer nights, constituting a cultural offer of quality for the region ”.
“With nearly 600 members from 18 nationalities, we think this project will prove to be an element of rapport between the local community, eager to regain their open-air cinema, and these many foreigners who now live here. On the other hand, to re-show films in this place is to give back to Olanenses part of their cultural and patrimonial identity, since several generations have seen here the first, perhaps the only, films of their lives ”, comments the association's management.
The association has a backyard with all the conditions for the screening of open-air films, as it has a screen integrated into the structure of the building, which in the distant past (30/40 years) was widely used for this purpose.
