Thursdays in August means Screen on the Green!

The Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is brought vividly to life amidst the spectacle, color, and music of Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival. Free-spirited trolley driver Orfeu falls for the lovely newcomer Eurydice on the eve of Carnival, but their joy is short-lived as they soon find themselves pursued both by Orfeu’s jealous fiancée and by the masked figure of Death. 1959, Rated PG, 107 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles
