Cinema Under the Stars at the SoundScape

The Miami Jewish Film Festival and the City of Miami Beach are proud to announce the return of the SoundScape Cinema Series with a spectacular season of free films screened under the stars at the New World Center. From October 3 through May 2019, the series brings classics, family favorites, and award-winning films every Wednesday night at 8pm to the soaring 7,000 square foot projection wall of the New World Center.

The Soundscape Cinema Series celebrates the magnificent diversity of world cinema and will present revelatory stories that explore new worlds, new perspectives, and new ways of being. Each of the films in this program offers an exposure to unfamiliar places and ways of life that will entertain, enlighten, excite, and celebrate film's ability to illuminate the world around us.

The series will kick off on Wednesday, October 3 with a newly restored presentation of The NeverEnding Story, the beloved family-friendly classic about a troubled boy who discovers an extraordinary storybook and the fantastical world within its pages.

Several notable films featured in past Miami Jewish Film Festival editions will be presented as part of the series, including the acclaimed Israeli films The Band’s Visit and Harmonia; the Oscar-winning film Ida which will be shown on Yom HaShoah; and the documentary The Last Resort about Miami Beach photographer Andi Sweet, winner of the Audience Award at last year’s Miami Jewish Film Festival.

The series will also host screenings of Hollywood blockbusters such as Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot and Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One; the beloved comedy Big starring Tom Hanks; James L. Brooks’ Oscar-winner As Good As It Gets on Valentines Day; and William Friedkin’s iconic epic Sorcerer starring the late Roy Scheider.

Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket, bring a picnic, and bring friends and family and join in discovering the everlasting magic of the movies under the stars.
