The Meaning of Life is in Laughter
For the fifth summer running, the much-loved SNFCC program Park Your Cinema brings you a selection of classic movies, to either discover for the first time, or enjoy anew on the big screen.
July’s screenings set the tone with laugh-out-loud comedies at the SNFCC’s Great Lawn. At testing times for humanity, cinema has served as the perfect means of escape, encouragement and companionship. The first few months of 2020 went beyond anything that we have experienced as a civilization in several decades. And, ironically, they kept us away from the cinema. But movies are still out there… And laughter is what we need the most today. Let’s share it, once again, out loud!

What's Up, Doc? (1972)
Four identical suitcases, with entirely different contents of great significance to their owners, get mixed up in a hotel, and change hands constantly, creating chaos… all over San Francisco! The third greatest U.S. box office hit of 1972 is an outrageous screwball comedy that pays homage to films of its genre since the 1930s, as well as to the epic cartoons of Looney Tunes. (The title is a direct reference to Bugs Bunny’s most famous line.) Barbra Streisand has never been so funny!
Director: Peter Bogdanovich
