Cinema Paradiso marks Bastille Day (one day late) with a major party that will lack only the nude runners. A musical revue called Parlez-vous Français will be showcased in French with English subtitles, the tale of a teacher moving from France to the United States to live out the American Dream. A colossal 50 pop songs are packed into the story many of them hits that were French in the first place. Top that off with a gourmet buffet from CroissanTime with free wine, soft drinks, and, of course, rivers of Orangina. Plus there will be live music and dancing lubricated by said wine. Tantalizingly, Cinema Paradiso hints of many surprises in store. For Francophiles, this is heaven.
The Bastille Day celebration starts at 7 p.m. at Cinema Paradiso (503 SE Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale). All-inclusive tickets cost $50. To make reservations, call 954-565-0628, or visit fliff.com.
