If you saw Amélie when Railroad Square Cinema, the Maine Film Center’s previous incarnation, first showed it in 2001, you’ll remember why we had such huge audiences for this utterly charming, inventive, original French comedy–and want to see it again in this long awaited return to the big screen. If you didn’t join us 23 years ago, you can look forward to “a delicious pastry of a movie. You see it, and later when you think about it, you smile”–Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times. Amélie, a young waitress in a tiny Parisian café, discovers an old box of childhood treasures hidden beneath her apartment floorboards, which leads her on an odyssey to transform the lives of her neighbors, and perhaps even her own.

In French with English subtitles.
