Our first film screening of the Summer is Federico Fellini's 1960 classic, LA DOLCE VITA, starring Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, and Anouk Aimée. Join us on the first day of Summer, June 21, for this screening and live prelude on the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ!

In Federico Fellini's lauded Italian film, restless reporter Marcello Rubini (Marcello Mastroianni) drifts through life in Rome. While Marcello contends with the overdose taken by his girlfriend, Emma (Yvonne Furneaux), he also pursues heiress Maddalena (Anouk Aimée) and movie star Sylvia (Anita Ekberg), embracing a carefree approach to living. Despite his hedonistic attitude, Marcello does have moments of quiet reflection, resulting in an intriguing cinematic character study.

La Dolce Vita (Italian for "the sweet life" or "the good life") was described by the New York Times as "one of the most widely seen and acclaimed European movies of the 1960s". It was nominated for four Academy Awards, and won one for Best Costume Design: Black-and-White. La Dolce Vita also earned the Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival. Entertainment Weekly voted it the 6th Greatest film of all time. In 2010, the film was ranked #11 in Empire magazine's "The 100 Best Films of World Cinema".
