Two screenings of the film “Arrangiarsi (Pizza…and the Art of Living)” will be shown at the Orpheum Theater on Saturday, June 1. Fifty percent of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Lord’s Cupboard of Jefferson County for their summertime L.O.A.F. Program.
Arrangiarsi is filmmaker Matteo Troncone’s personal and loving tribute to Naples, Italy. Mr. Troncone begins the fascinating and philosophical first-person travelogue with no job, no relationship, and no home. He decides to trace his roots to Naples and learn the secret of Neapolitan pizza. Once there, he discovers the art of ‘arrangiarsi,’ the process of arranging yourself to make something from nothing. This inspiring film combines foodie passion, little-known Italian history, and quirky Neapolitans to tell the tale of one man’s journey to find himself and the greatest pizza on earth.
Troncone’s film tour comes to Fairfield direct from Chicago and moves on to screenings at the prestigious Laemmle theaters in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Pasadena. Local showings at the Orpheum Theater are at 2pm and 7pm, and the filmmaker himself will be present for a question and answer session after each. Tickets can be purchased at the At Home Store, and are $10 each. More information as well as a link to the film trailer can be found on the Lord’s Cupboard Facebook page.
The summertime L.O.A.F. Program helps feed hungry school-children who depend on free breakfasts and lunches during the school year. The Lord’s Cupboard runs the program during summer break, and during that time low-income Jefferson County families can receive weekly kid-friendly food.
