CANCELLED – to Mar 30 | FILM CYCLE | Silent Cinema at Casa da Achada | Mouraria | FREE
January 27, 2020 @ 21:30 - 23:00
An event every week that begins at 21:30 on Monday, repeating until March 30, 2020
If there’s any hope left for Lisbon in the face of genocidal gentrification, rampant inequality, unintentional rape by tourists and landlords, and general good old-fashioned capitalist decay, that hope is, and has been for a thousand years, the neighborhood of Mouraria.
And tucked away in the seldom-accessed-by-tuk-tuk heart of this haven of character is Casa da Achada, a non-profit cultural organization opened a decade ago to honor and continue the legacy of local artist, writer, critic, and teacher of Portuguese Mário Dionísio.
One of the many cool things the “House of the Found” does is free silent oldie film screenings every Monday night. They’re usually preceded by a guest speaker, and have Portuguese subtitles.
*The socialist fun commences at 21h30, and seating is limited.
**Make sure to bundle up this time of year as, due to capitalism, there is no heating.
