They leave those chairs out all winter, during storms and snow and ice? It would be too hot to sit outside and watch a movie here during the summer. Too hot for me, anyway.

I sure feel sorry for poor Giuseppe...but then I've heard he's a stiff-necked fellow!

Thanks, Trillian, for your so kind comments! Nice to hear from you!

Great space for a movie.

Looks like a fab setting for an open-air cinema, although the screen is quite small. Have you ever watched any movies there?

You can't blame him, no one wants to miss a good movie! I wish we had more outdoor theaters here :D

Lovely place for a movie viewing. But I don't think I like the idea of the seats being there all the time. Can't even take a photo of the beautiful building without the projector shack marring the view.

I hope Modigliani doesn't strain his neck too much.

What a charming setting for an outdoor movie theatre! Is it well attended? Do they play special kinds of movies? It looks to me like a place where people would open up and talk to strangers, not like in a modern movie house, where no one says a peep to anyone except with whom they came.

That's pretty cool, I hope they show some good films. Do you ever go? It must be nice to watch a movie with Modigliani's brother.

Ah, the lesser known brother.

I got a laugh from this one! Poor Giuseppe. Someone should give him a better seat!

JM said...

LOL at Modigliani's brother! He will get some serious neck problems! :-)
The building on top is wonderful!

Giuseppe and everyone else are lucky to have a "cinema" like this.
