LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL 2K restoration


LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL is truly a masterpiece of cinema and storytelling. It is listed in the top 25 films of all time on IMDb and revered by many as one of the greatest films ever made. Directed by Roberto Benigni in 1997, who also starred in the leading role and picked himself up a Best Actor Oscar, one of the few to ever be awarded to a foreign language actor or actress. LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL has been beautifully restored in digital 2K and we are very excited to present on our big screen for two shows only.
