Oslo, Norway – This Saturday the U.S. Embassy is starting a new monthly series of free screenings of classic American movies in partnership with Cinemateket in Oslo. This monthly American Movie Night series kicks off with a screening of the 1961 classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Although tickets for Saturday’s event sold out within hours, there will be more opportunities to attend future screenings, including It’s A Wonderful Life in December and Casablanca in January. Information about upcoming screenings will be posted on the U.S. Embassy Oslo’s social media platforms.
“We’re very excited to bring classic American films to the big screen for the enjoyment of a new generation of Norwegians,” said Chargé d’Affaires Richard Riley. “Cinema has the power to bring us closer together, and these iconic American movies are part of our shared cultural heritage. We look forward to presenting some of the best that America has to offer through our American Movie Night free film series over the coming year.”
