Independent Film Screenings Bring Lebanese Cinema Back To Life

Metropolis

One thing most people missed out on this year is the feeling of excitement rushing to a movie right at showtime.

After more than a year’s halt and different trials to showcase films again, Metropolis Cinema Association and Beirut DC are back with a collaboration with Ishbilia Theatre and ArtHub in Saida and Shams – Sunflower Theatre in Beirut. 

Now you have the option to indulge in a cinematic experience as three shows will take place at each of Ishbilia Theatre and ArtHub and Metropolis Cinema in Saida, and the Sunflower theater in Beirut this weekend.

The films have been specifically chosen according to the SAWA program.

The program is comprised of 6 films that were put together collectively in an effort to bring back physical cinema screenings of independent films to Beirut and Saida.

The three films in each theater will debut their screening on December 18th and will run until December 20th.
