Saturate your Saturday evening in classic cinema at this Getty Villa screening of Marcel Camus's award-winning film, Orfeu Negro. Protocol dictates that we mention something of the plot and characters in this updating of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth set in 20th-century Rio; but let’s not kid ourselves—if ever there was a movie solely about its music, it’s this one. Enjoy Orfeu Negro in all its Bossa Nova-filled glory at this screening under the stars, as you tuck into eats from the Getty Villa Café. Wash them down with a Mint-Infused Lime Agua Fresca rum cocktail, specially concocted to match the evening's entertainment. Tickets cost $7 and are available online now.
