  • Slab Cinema is showing Cinema Paradiso at Weston Urban Park.
Bring your comfiest chairs and blankets for a socially-distanced movie night in downtown San Antonio at the Weston Urban Park, where Slab Cinema will present the 1988 Italian drama Cinema Paradiso.

The classic film follows Salvatore Di Vita, a famous film director who reminisces on his childhood and his relationship with his late mentor Alfredo, the projectionist at a movie house who taught Salvatore his love of film.



The 1989 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film, Cinema Paradiso is a highlight of Slab’s niche April lineup of outdoor screenings, which includes the final entries in its Foodie Film Festival at The Good Kind in Southtown.

$5-10, 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, Weston Urban Park, 103 West Houston St., slabcinemaarthouse.com.
