Sembrich To Rome With Love
Sembrich screens 'To Rome With Love'
Woody Allen comedy kicks off 'Titans Onscreen' summer film series at Bolton Free Library
The Sembrich, located at 4800 Lakeshore Drive in Bolton Landing, announces the first screening in its summer film series, “Titans Onscreen,” showing select Monday nights at 7:30 p.m. at Bolton Free Library through the summer. Admission is free. The library is located at 4922 Lakeshore Drive in Bolton Landing, New York.
The first in the series is Woody Allen's masterful 2012 comedy To Rome With Love, showing on Monday, June 24, at 7:30 p.m. Set against the scenic backdrop of the Eternal City, this story of life, love, fame and fate culminates in a comically absurd production of Leoncavello's Pagliacci as only Woody could imagine. Verdi and Puccini are among the other composers featured on the film's soundtrack.
The film is preceded by a screening of Pizza Verdi, a 2011 award-winning short film by Gary Nadeau.
“The Sembrich extends its sincere gratitude to librarian Megan Baker and to the library Board of Trustees for the hospitality they extend in allowing us to sponsor films year-round in Bolton Free Library,” says Sembrich Artistic Director Richard Wargo. “In keeping with the TITANS OF OPERA 2013 season theme, this summer's film series features a variety of genres, from comedy to drama to documentary, each highlighted by music of great opera composers.”
The series continues with Moonrise Kingdom (2012) on July 8, La Traviata (1982) on July 22, Wagner and Me (2010) on August 12, and Amadeus (1984) on August 25.
