Park your Cinema: Series of movie screenings under the moonlight
This summer, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center inaugurates a bond with the Athenian cinéfil culture, by opening the VC, for a series of weekly screenings of classical films. At the first PARK YOUR CINEMA, the cinematic choices are based on vintage works, which have helped establish an entertainment tradition of reissues of classical films at Athenian outdoor movie theaters. From the ’30s to the early ’70s, the films, screened in a chronological order, apply to the mythology of global filmography; movies which have been loved over and over again, screened under the Athenian sky. The potential “location” of these screenings is flexible, since the SNFCC offers various alternatives for “parking” an outdoor movie theater!

Harvey (1950)
Director: Henry Koster
A 6-feet tall… rabbit, named Harvey, is the best friend of middle age bachelor, Elwood R. Dowd. Elwood’s relatives are not particularly concerned about this, as long as Elwood doesn’t ruin things in their social circle by introducing the “invisible” Harvey to everyone around him. The plot takes us to a psychiatric institution, leading to a series of hilarious misunderstandings. The original Broadway play, written by Mary Coyle Chase is ingeniously adapted into film, in this amiable—and quite surreal for its time—comedy, with a great performance by James Stewart and an even more memorable performance by Josephine Hull (Academy Award – Best Supporting Actress), which balances extremely well between normality and kookiness.
