Cinematheque to show Pope Francis's favorite movie
Add event to my calendar

Pope Francis’s all-time favorite movie (mentioned in a September interview), La Strada, is a moving Fellini fable that charts the tragicomic relationship between a brutish, itinerant circus strongman (Anthony Quinn) and the simple, innocent waif (Giulietta Masina, Fellini’s wife) whom he buys, employs as a clown, and exploits as a slave. Donald Cozzens, a prominent priest, author, and professor at John Carroll University, will lead a discussion after the movie, perhaps illuminating why the first Jesuit pope likes it so much. Subtitles. 35mm. 115 min. Special admission $10; members and CIA I.D. holders $8; age 25 & under $7. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
