On the eve of Bastille Days
, the East Town Association
is partnering with the Avalon Atmospheric Theater
to bring you a very special screening of the whimsical 2001 French film Amélie
, nominated for five Academy Awards. All tickets are $5, and there will also be some delectable French menu items available, inspired by the film.
Amélie tells the tale of the title character, intent on making those around her happy and in the process finds true love. It remains a charming film, imbued with a sense of community, charity and hope that few films achieve. Featuring a joyous titular performance by renowned French actress Audrey Tautou, deft direction from Jean-Pierre Jeunet and a traveling lawn gnome, Amélie's charms haven't waned over the past 17 years, and you may just be inspired to do something good when it's all over.
