Cinemagics Rooftop Schedule for December

Posted by Mark

Below is this months schedule for Cinemagics rooftop movie nights. If you’ve never been to them before, they’re held twice a week, every Thursday and Saturday on top of the building that has Xcite in old Salmiya. I think this is the first time where I haven’t seen a single movie from the list they’re playing. Usually I would have watched at least one but this time none. Actually the only one I’ve even heard of is Caché. Check out all the movies and their timings below:

Every month they’ll be playing a surprise film, where you won’t know what you’re watching until just a minute before the film begins. One thing is for sure, every month the surprise film will be either one of their favorite film on the list, or the most unique in one way or the other. This month’s film won and was nominated for over 30 awards worldwide including the Oscars, Golden Gloves, Independent Spirit Awards and the Baftas. A unique, hilarious, bizarre and poetic little film.

    I bet the cinephile, Ms. Nasrin Al Zuhair is centre forward in this celebration of film and art. Do they discuss any of the films with the audience after the screening??
    I miss the Cine Club and the film critic, Farook Abdel Aziz’s commentary.

    Going forward, they ought to consider a nominal admit fee of 500 fils or so. Everytime we are Cinemagicing we take an emotional guilt trip: don’t fancy being free loaders for Life. Somehow 500 fils seem about right, and if you can carry your own drink with you, nothing like it.
    Only wished they’d screen more of Persian, Bengali and Spanish cinema.
