The Rise of Louis XIV

September 02, 2011 Comments Off

If you are still new Cinematheque, this is how it goes: 
Every SUNDAY, at closing, The Fine Art of Design wheels the endless racks of clothing out of the way, exposing a large white wall. Couches and chairs are moved in front of it, creating a cozy and intimate screening area. Coffee is brewed, beverages are chilled, and the film is setup. By 8 PM, the sun has gone down, and John Steppling is ready to introduce the film. A little backstory and history to put the film in context, and play.

This Sunday, Cinematheque will be screening Roberto Rossellini's "The Rise of Louis XIV" also translated as, "Taking of Power by Louis XIV."

For more information, check the PS Cinematheque's page.
