Important Notice

In light of the latest advice from the Government around Coronavirus (COVID-19) our Filmhouse Sunderland partners, Empire Cinemas have taken the decision to temporarily close its UK sites, including Empire Sunderland.

This means that our forthcoming screenings on 19 March (PARASITE), 26 March (LITTLE JOE) and 2 April (PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE) are postponed.

Filmhouse Sunderland is not going anywhere, but it does mean that sadly we will be taking a short break until we and the film industry are able to celebrate cinema with you once again.

La Dolce Vita (12A)

January 23 @ 6:30 pm
  • This event has passed.

Director: Federico Fellini.  Italy 1960. 176 mins.

In English and Italian, French and German with English subtitles.

What better way to open Filmhouse Sunderland than with this glittering reissue of Federico Fellini’s acclaimed masterpiece. Presented in a beautiful 4K restoration, La Dolce Vita is the satirical story of Marcello (Marcello Mastroianni), a gossip journalist living and working in Rome in 1960.

The film follows Marcello over seven days in the city, as he seeks love and happiness from the back of his Vespa.  A true milestone of cinema, La Dolce Vita captures a Rome balancing tradition with hip, sexy modernity and features one of the most enduring cinema moments of all time – Marcello wading into the Trevi fountain after Hollywood starlet Anita Ekberg. Don’t miss it!
