Cinema Akil Wants To Bring You Along On A Journey Around The World – Starting With Italy

Having reopened its doors on June 12 after nearly three months of restriction due to the ongoing public health crisis, Cinema Akil has announced their 'Traveller' summer series will run from June 26 through to September 2020.

This means a summer-long series of timeless classics and contemporary favorites, all celebrating travel, to be shown on the big screen – allowing you to live vicariously through film.

‘Traveller’ will kick off its programme by taking you through Italy with a series of four films starting with Frederico Fellini's classic La Dolce Vita (1960), and Paolo Sorrentino’s La Grande Bellezza, through a collaboraton with the Italian Cultural Institute and Front Row Filmed Entertainment.

“At Cinema Akil, we've always believed that cinema can take you through places and times: you don’t have to get on a plane to travel,” Founder and managing director Butheina Kazim of Cinema Akil said.

“Summer 2020 is not a typical one and if . . . you’re choosing not to fly to your summer holiday destination, we wanted to bring that destination to you. An ode to travel and wanderlust, Cinema Akil Traveller is taking a bet on the power of cinema to transport us into new landscapes."

Cinema Akil’s full Traveller program will be revealed on Cinema Akil’s website and social media channels throughout the series. Tickets will be available for sale on their website too.
