Cinema Paradiso

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:
