A SEASON OF ITALIAN CINEMA

Nine Italian-language films to be screened at Altrincham Little Theatre on Sundays throughout late 2018 / early 2019.

Following the success of Cinema on Sundays in 2017, we are delighted to present a second Italian Film Season - an interesting and varied programme of nine Italian films spanning more than 50 years. The programme is now finalised and full film details will be available here soon.

Tickets are excellent value, particularly if you book for the whole season which costs just £40 for all nine films. Any four films cost £25.00 or individual film tickets are £7.00.

All the films will be introduced by our guest speaker Maggie Hoffgen, who will also lead a discussion session after each screening for anyone who wishes to join in (complimentary refreshments are provided in the theatre bar). Film notes will be provided.
Films are screened in Italian with English subtitles.

The theatre will open from 2.15pm, the speaker will introduce the film at 3.00pm and screenings begin at 3.15pm.
