La Strada (PG)

Cinema 2 / Cinema 3
Over sixty years since it won the first Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and launched both its director, Federico Fellini and lead actress, Giulietta Masina to international stardom, we’re delighted to show this new digital restoration of La Strada.
Touring around provincial Italy with their circus act, strong-man Zampanò (Anthony Quinn)
has an overbearing, brutish relationship with the funny waif (Giulietta
Masina) with whom he performs. But a meeting with an enigmatic
tightrope-walker (Richard Basehart) gives her a sense of self-worth.
