Cais do Oriente
To complement the CCBB's extremeley popular new Impressionismo centrepiece (that has attracted queues snaking right around the block), a series of documentaries and films thematically linked to the artistic movement are on rotation at the cultural centre's cinema. Highlights include a series of documentaries analysing the lives and works of Monet and Van Gogh, while you can also catch a rare screening of John Huston's original 1952 version of Moulin Rouge. A host of the most significant impressionist films from the early 20th century also feature such as Abel Gance's epic silent biopic Napoléon and Jean Epstein's interpretation of the short story The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe.
