April 9: Bicycle Thieves

In one of the greatest examples of the Italian neorealism movement, the bicycle of the newly-employed Antonio (Lamberto Maggiorani) is stolen, and his new job is doomed unless he can find the thief. With the help of his lively son Bruno (Enzo Staiola), Antonio combs the city, growing increasingly desperate for justice.


Directed by Vittorio De Sica

Starring Lamberto Maggiorani, Enzo Staiola

April 16: La Dolce Vita

In Federico Fellini’s sprawling epic, restless reporter Marcello Rubini (Marcello Mastroianni) drifts through life in Rome. While Marcello contends with the overdose taken by his girlfriend, Emma (Yvonne Furneaux), he also pursues heiress Maddalena (Anouk Aimée) and movie star Sylvia (Anita Ekberg), embracing a carefree approach to living.

Despite his hedonistic attitude, Marcello does have moments of quiet reflection, resulting in an intriguing cinematic character study.

In Naples, poor Adelina supports her husband by selling black market cigarettes. In Milan, wealthy Anna is having an affair with poor Renzo, whose infatuation is tested by a near-tragedy. In Rome, prostitute Mara seeks the help of her client Augusto to spurn the advances of her neighbor's infatuated grandson.

When Salvatore grows up, falls in love with a beautiful local girl (Agnese Nano), and takes over as the Paradiso's projectionist, Alfredo must convince Salvatore to leave his small town and pursue his passion for filmmaking.
