Description

Spending an evening at the Paramount Theatre for the Summer Classic Film Series screening of Apur Sansar is a moving and monumental way to beat the summertime heat, unless you get too steamed trying to find a downtown parking spot!

MAKE IT A TRANSIT ADVENTURE | Capital Metro, the Network of Asian American Organizations (NAAO), and the Paramount Theatre invite you to celebrate the 60th anniversary of a masterpiece with free admission to the movie, free popcorn AND a free Transit Day Pass -- so you can spend more time enjoying the film and less time circling for parking.

4:15 PM | CHECK-IN | Meet us at the North Lamar Transit Center -- to get a free Capital Metro Local Day Pass and ticket to the film!

4:25 PM | CATCH CAP METRO | North Lamar Transit Center (Stop #5859) #801 MetroRapid | 4:26pm / 4:41pm / 4:56pm -- every 15 minutes, 7 days a week!

5:00 PM | APUR SANSAR | By the time Apur Sansar was released, Satyajit Ray had directed not only the first two Apu films but also the masterpiece The Music Room, and was well on his way to becoming a legend. This extraordinary final chapter brings our protagonist’s journey full circle. Apu is now in his early twenties, out of college, and hoping to live as a writer. Alongside his professional ambitions, the film charts his romantic awakening, which occurs as the result of a most unlikely turn of events, and his eventual, fraught fatherhood. Featuring soon to be Ray regulars Soumitra Chatterjee and Sharmila Tagore in star-making performances, and demonstrating Ray’s ever more impressive skills as a crafter of pure cinematic imagery, Apur Sansar is a moving conclusion to a monumental trilogy. All Transit Adventurers get free admission + popcorn. Runtime 106 min. Screening starts at 5:30 PM.

7:23 PM | RETURN TRIP | We'll head back together! Austin History Center Station - Northbound (Stop #2606) | #801 MetroRapid | 7:23pm / 7:38pm / 7:53pm -- every 15 minutes, 7 days a week!
