Join us for the international premiere of CINEMA CITY, a homage to the history of Iranian film! Davood is a cinema projectionist who loses his job at the onset of the Islamic Revolution in 1979. The revolutionaries burn down the theaters and Davood who loves movies is forced to set up a home theater in his basement.
