Nostalgic Iranian movies up for late-night Ramadan screenings
Art and Experience: Tehran’s Charsu Cineplex has selected a lineup of 30 nostalgic and memorable movies by Iranian directors to show during its late-night screenings scheduled for Ramadan that began today in Iran.
Among the films are “Love-Stricken” by Ali Hatami, “Maybe Some Other Time” by Bahram Beizai, “The Runner” by Amir Naderi, “Under the Skin of the City” by Rakhshan Bani-Etemad, and “The Bride of Fire” by Khosro Sinai, the Cineplex announced in a press release on Sunday.
The lineup also includes “Fireworks Wednesday” by Asghar Farhadi, “Where Is the Friend’s Home?” by Abbas Kiarostami, “Snowman” by Davud Mirbaqeri and “The Glass Agency” by Ebrahim Hatamikia.
All the money that will be raised by the screenings is earmarked for charity.
Other cinema complexes across Tehran are scheduled to offer overnight screenings during the month of Ramadan.
The innovative scheme known as “Azan to Azan” or “Iftar to Sahar” was initiated by movie theater owners in 2009.
The plan was established to lessen the loss of box office receipts in the off-season during the month.
