The ‘Drive in Comic Con Portugal Sessions’ project has in its genesis the concern with maintaining the safety distance, given the current context of the covid-19 pandemic.
The cinema sessions will take place from 1 to 7 June, starting at 8 pm, in the Jardim Municipal de Oeiras, in the Lisbon district, the organization announced.
June 5th and 6th will have double sessions, being possible to watch two films in a row. It is a free event, subject to reservation, aimed at all ages and which starts on a Monday, with the film ‘My Spy’, by Peter Segal. On June 2, Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, ‘Once upon a time in… Hollywood’, will be presented.
On Wednesday, it will be possible to watch the South Korean film ‘Parasite’, by Bong Joon-ho, the big winner of this year’s Oscars, who collected the statuette for best film, best director, best international film and yet for better original argument. The horror film ‘It 2’ follows on the 4th.
With the arrival of Friday, comes the first double session of the program, which includes the films ‘La La Land’, by Damien Chazelle, with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, and the horror film ‘Brightburn: The Son of Evil’.
The other double session will take place on Saturday, with the presentation of the films ‘Spider-Man: Away from Home’ and ‘John Wick 3’.
To close the week of ‘drive in’ the organization presents Jenny Gage’s ‘After’, an American drama based on a homonymous novel aimed at the younger audience.
