Smile, and the world will smile with you…
For the fifth summer running, the much-loved SNFCC program Park Your Cinema brings the visitors of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center a selection of classic movies, to either discover for the first time, or enjoy anew on the big screen.
August’s projections at the SNFCC’s Great Lawn continue along the theme of laugh-out-loud comedy. From a glamorous cruise in search of a rich husband to the craziest car race of the early 20th century, you will enjoy Hollywood’s best offerings of the last few decades, with an all-star cast of our most beloved performers of all time. A magical escape from reality that only the cinema can bring to life.
Program Coordinator: Ilias Frangoulis
The Great Race (1965): Plot
In the early 20th century, two sworn enemies take part in an epic car race, starting from New York and ending in Paris. Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood star in this ultra-expensive slapstick extravaganza of non-stop drama, which is a wonderful homage to comedies of the silent film tradition. It includes the longest (four minutes!) pie-throwing scene in the history of cinema, which took five days to capture on film, exhausting both cast and crew!
Director: Blake Edwards
