4K Restoration! In an absolutely radiant performance, Giulietta Masina plays the ever-hopeful Roman prostitute Cabiria, who meets life’s trials and tragedies with an indomitable belief in love. Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film prize at the 30th Academy Awards, Nights of Cabiria stands as a masterpiece of Italian cinema and a crucial transition point between Fellini’s neo-realist origins and the dazzling fantasies of his later works.

The screening on Thursday, April 11, is presented in conjunction with the film course Early Maestro: The Cinema of Federico Fellini, taught by Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D. On that date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.

Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, online, using the showtimes listed below the “Buy Tickets” heading. The Box Office is open for ticket sales 30 minutes prior to the first show of the day.
