1960 Academy Award Winner and winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival, Marcel Camus’s Black Orpheus retells the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice against the madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its magnificent color photography and lively soundtrack, this film brought the infectious bossa nova beat to the United States.
"A riotous, rapturous explosion of sound and color, Black Orpheus is less about Orpheus’s doomed love for Eurydice than about Camus’s love for cinema at its most gestural and kinetic." — Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

Presenting one of the most popular romances of recent times in a less than wholesome new light, this is the Valentine’s Day show for anyone who can’t get date, doesn’t want one, or has partnered up with someone as cynical, bitter and sardonic as themselves. Whether you love The Notebook, hate it, hate that you love it, or tell anyone who will listen that you’ve never seen it, come vent your "frustrations" at the saccharine love story that set the bar for romance at an unattainable height and unleashed Gosling fever upon the universe with a no-holds-barred text takedown. Bring your drinks into the theatre, leave your phone on, flex your thumbs, stretch your wit, and heckle until your sides split.
