Philadelphia Cinema Alliance (Cinefest & QFest) in conjunction with The Prince Music Theater and The Embassy of France will present a New French Film Series (all English Subtitles) entitled La Cinematheque.
The screenings will take place once a month this fall, starting on September 30th at the Prince Music Theater (1412 Chestnut Street) showtimes 6:45pm.
All four film choices seem to be light and entertaining fare, nothing avant-garde. Smart decision when finding a new audience:
Sept 30 -French Kissers (Les Beaux Gosses), directed by Riad Sattouf; a hilarious adolescent’s romp that is both sexy and a little naughty.
Oct 22 - Eden Is West, directed by Costa Garvas, from funny to heartrending journey of a man from unknown roots to an unstable future.
Nov 12 -OSS 117: Lost in Rio (OSS 117: Rio ne répond plus), directed by Michel Hazanavicius, a spot-on comic recreation of a 1960’s French spy series starring comedian Jean Dujardin.
Dec 10 - The First Day of the Rest of Your Life (Le premier jour du reste de ta vie) directed by Rémi Bezançon, a zany tale about one families’ life experiences about five days in a 12-year cycle.
Prices: $9.50 for a single / $25 for the film series
Members of PCA and/or Prince: $7 / $19
Student Prices: (with current ID) $5 / $15
Opening Night Film, Wine Tasting and Food Pairing $21 Members/ $25 General Admission
