For the sixth summer running, Park Your Cinema, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC’s) series of open-air cinema projections, welcomes the public at the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Park.
This year, for the selection of films addressed to adult viewers, the SNFCC inaugurates its partnership with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF), the country’s most prestigious film institution.
This summer, therefore, when our need to laugh is greater than ever, the TIFF presents a series of films that prove that comedy is, after all, a very serious matter.
School of Rock (2003):
The ultimate rock comedy, directed by our beloved Richard Linklater and starring Jack Black. After being kicked out by his band, Dewey Finn finds himself penniless and unemployed. In order to pay his debts, he accepts a job as a substitute music teacher at a private school. Through he initially feels like a fish out of water, he soon begins to bond with his students, bringing out their talents in music and forming a new rock band. A feelgood movie with a fantastic soundtrack that inspired a musical, and with Jack Black in what is, arguably, the best role in his career so far.
Direction: Richard Linklater, Screenplay: Mike White
