Prince Theatre Heritage Stay in collaboration with the French Embassy will turn its lobby into a mini cinema for the “French Weekend Movie Club” and screening two popular movies with English subtitles on the last weekend of the month through February.
The event kicks on this Friday and Saturday (December 28-29) with “Le Grand Mechant Renard et Autres Contes (“The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales”), a 2017 French animated anthology comedy directed by Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert; and “Tamara”, a 2016 teen comedy film directed by Alexandre Castagnetti.
On January 25 and 26, screenings continue with Jean-Paul Rouve’s “Les Souvenirs” (“Memories”), a touching 2014 fiction about a grandmother, who escapes from a nursing home and her young grandson; and “Chante Ton Bac D’Abord” (“We Did It On A Song”), a 2014 musical docudrama directed by David Andre.
Hubert Charuel’s “Petit Paysan” (“Bloody Milk”), a 2017 film with the French countryside as backdrop and “Ridicule”, a 1996 classic period fiction taking place at the Versailles court directed by Patrice Leconte, will be screened on February 22 and 23.
