Join us as we make our Arab Film Series an in-person event for the first time since March, at the Ford-Wyoming Drive-In Theatre for one night only! Spend a night under the stars, with a car full of your favorite people from your quarantine circle, and enjoy a trip back to the good ol’ days of Arab cinema with the classic Egyptian film, Days and Nights (Ayaam wa Layaali).
This romantic musical-drama from director Henri Barakat features legendary Egyptian singer Abdel Halim Hafez in one of his earliest film roles. He stars as Yehia, a handsome young athlete who succeeds in every endeavor despite having been raised in an unhappy home. When Yehia starts courting the beautiful Samia (Lebanese actress Iman), his delinquent and resentful stepbrother begins acting out in ways that threaten to destroy all chances for the new couple’s happiness.
Egypt / 102 minutes / Musical, Drama, Romance / In Arabic with English subtitles

Due to the pandemic, we have been closed to the public since March 13. Closed doors mean that our earned revenue streams have dried up, and corporate funds have been pivoted to assist with COVID-19 relief or for their own financial survival. We are looking forward to the day we can safely reopen, but until then, we need your support.
