to Jan 29 | FILM AND DISCUSSION | Os Grandes Filmes de 2019 | Saldanha | 7€
…So what did you think?”
If you were alive in 2019, you’ve probably had at least one of the above controversial conversations, and maybe even lost some respect for a friend in the process.
But if you missed one (or all) of the above award-winning heavy-hitters – or just can’t get enough of Brad Pitt, Joaquim Phoenix, and/or that Korean dude — then you’re in luck. This January, Saldanha movie theater Espaço Nimas invites you to brush up on what everybody was talking about in 2019 when they weren’t talking about work or the weather, plus two Portuguese coat-tail riders.
The theater, somewhat ambitiously, calls it Os Grandes Filmes de 2019: sessões únicas e especiais, or “The Great Films of 2019: special and unique sessions.” They’re special and unique because after three of the screenings you’ll get a chance to argue with some strangers about the meaning of greatness.
Here’s the FULL PROGRAM (+info on the Portuguese greats):
Saturday, Jan 18:
19h – “Joker” – session followed by debate and discussion.
22h10 – “Once upon a time in… Hollywood.”
Sunday, Jan 19:
