Fighting Fascism

When: Sat., Aug. 8 2015

Who doesn’t love a good World War II flick? Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque sure does. Tonight, it’s showing the 1945 Italian drama Rome Open City. The film, pieced together from salvaged stock, highlights the gritty realism of fascism. Many of the actors were non-professionals and the sets used were actual war locations. It follows the resistance to the Nazis occupation of Rome during the war. It shows tonight at 5 p.m. and tickets are $9. (Rees)
