Seasonal Special Happenings

Straight Outta Spain

When: Sat., July 18 2015

How often do you watch Spanish films from the 1970s? If the answer is more than “never,” you have a pretty specific hobby, friend. But, assuming your answer was less than once, now’s your chance. The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinemateque is showing The Spirit of the Beehive today at 5 p.m. The 1973 film by Victor Erice is considered to be Spain’s movie masterpiece. It’s centered on a young girl during Spain’s Civil War in 1940. She becomes fascinated by Frankenstein and imagines him as a welcomed friend in her bleak world. Think Pan’s Labrynth without the whimsy. Tickets are $9 and there will be a post-film discussion. (Rees)
