The second season of Cinema a Colazione concludes on Sunday, March 17th.

Like the first edition, this season also saw a constant and high number of viewers participating in the twelve scheduled screenings (averaging 90 viewers per film).

This Sunday at Cinema 4 Mori, the film Sunset Boulevard (USA 1950 – 1h50m) by Billy Wilder will be screened in its original version with Italian subtitles.

The film will be introduced by Gianfranco Panariello, Massimo Ghirlanda, Marco Bruciati, and Alessio Porquier.

Sunset Boulevard is a 1950 film noir directed by Billy Wilder starring William Holden, Gloria Swanson, and Erich von Stroheim. Praised by critics from its first screenings, the film received eleven Academy Award nominations, winning three Oscars.

Joe Gillis (William Holden), a screenwriter, is found dead in a pool on Sunset Boulevard. A flashback takes us back six months earlier: the narrator is Gillis himself, who tells the story of how he ended up in the decaying mansion of Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), a former silent film Hollywood diva, who mistakes him for the undertaker of her deceased monkey…

Billy Wilder, born on June 22, 1906 in Sucha (Poland) and died on March 27, 2002 in Los Angeles, California, was a director, producer, writer, screenwriter, and actor.

In 1988, he received the Irving Thalberg Memorial at the Academy Awards. From 1946 to 1988, Billy Wilder won numerous awards: the Academy Award in 1946, 1951, 1961, and 1988; a Silver Ribbon in 1951; and the Venice Film Festival in 1972.

Cinema a Colazione is promoted by the Centro Studi Commedia all’Italiana, 50&Piu Università di Livorno, FiPiLi Horror Festival, Circolo KInoglaz, Erasmo Libri, and with the participation of the Municipality of Livorno, with the aim of promoting a collective and shared cinematic experience by enhancing the historic screening spaces in the city and bringing the audience to experience the cinema hall as a place of social interaction and discussion against the increasingly individualistic attitudes towards audiovisual consumption.
