Showtimes will be posted on the Monday prior to opening.
Having left his dreary provincial existence behind, a gossip columnist (Marcello Mastrioanni) wanders through an ultra-modern, ultra-sophisticated, ultra-decadent Rome. Throughout his adventures, Marcello's dreams, fantasies and nightmares are mirrored by the hedonism around him. A huge worldwide success, LA DOLCE VITA won several awards, including a New York Film Critics Circle award for Best Foreign Film and the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and is one of the most widely seen and acclaimed European movies of the 1960s. Also starring Anita Ekberg as a buxom fountain-wading film star and Anouk Aimée as Marcello’s bored socialite companion.
“LA DOLCE VITA not only defined a moment in time, but a moment in cinema…When it opened, it changed the way you saw films. It was an event." —Martin Scorsese
