After playing to standing-room-only crowds last summer,
Cinema San Pedro is Back! once again bringing the big screen
outdoors with its Free film series. Not just an outdoor screening...
It's an event! All Wednesdays, June, July and August.
Concessions are available starting at 7:30 p.m., pre-show begins at
8pm and the films begin at dusk.
Short films will be announced at each screening.
In the event of rain, that evening's screening will be cancelled.
In the past, we had Klingons, gorillas, Kung fu masters, a killer
rabbit, comedians and a bevy of high-jinx that often involved
people walking away with cool prizes. These are not your run-of
the-mill outdoor screenings.
Unwind by taking off your shoes, kicking back in your favorite lawn
chair with a drink and watching a great flick under the stars. On top
of classic movies, Cinema San Pedro provides Maverick short films
and uniquely themed entertainment each evening.

Ma Mère (2004) by Christophe Honoré
When Hélène (Isabelle Huppert) hears that her unfaithful husband has
been killed in a car crash, she launches headlong into a series of
wild parties, gradually involving her pious son Pierre (Louis Garrel) in her drink, drug and sex-fuelled nights out. When she mysteriously goes away, Pierre is left in the care of his mother's mistress Réa (Joana Preiss) and icy blonde sadist Hansi (Emma de Caunes), and together they initiate him into adulthood. Based on the novel by Georges Bataille. 1hr 50mins. French, with English subtitles.
Lila Says. The perils and pleasures of teenage sexuality are on
display here, as 16-year-old Lila (Vahina Giocante) enchants Chimo
(Mohammed Khouas) with her lurid fantasy life. Both inhabit an
impoverished sector of Marseilles, a place with few escape hatches
into the world of successful career options. More daunting for Chimo,
he and his Arab buddies face a society increasingly hostile to young
men with Muslim names attempting ascent to higher rungs on the
economic ladder. So, while Lila gropes towards her nascent personal
and sexual identity, she empowers herself in conscious distinction
from her far less empowered brown-skinned peers. Her awakening
also lets director Ziad Doueiri get at some of the tense racial issues
in contemporary France, and on the whole he does so with insight
and consequence. (1:29) French, with English subtitles. Not Rated.
