Comfort and Joy 

When: Sun., Sept. 20 2015
Right after delivering indie hits such as Gregory’s Girl and Local Hero, Scottish writer and director Bill Forsyth made 1984’s Comfort and Joy, a film that’s been described as “a quirky comedy-drama.” It centers on a Glasgow radio host (Bill Paterson) who becomes involved in an ice cream war between two rival Italian families that operate ice cream trucks in the city. The film was never released on DVD in the U.S.; tonight at 6:30, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque will screen a rare 35mm print. Tickets are $9, and the first 80 patrons receive a certificate from Mitchell’s Ice Cream for a free scoop. (Niesel)
