I was about 12 years old when a little movie called Cinema Paradiso came out. I watched it many times, but a couple of years ago, something strange started to happen. Whenever I would even watch the trailer, I would start to cry. It is about a kid from a small town in Sicily who finds who he is at the movies. He befriends the film operator at the only movie theater in his town. He falls in love with a girl he sees at the movie theater and their first kiss is there. Its all very romantic and emotional.
A couple of days ago in my classroom, I showed a clip from Cinema Paradiso. I got a little tear in my eye when I showed the clip, due to allergies. Yeah. Allergies.
Here are two little old movie theaters for your evening entertainment:
