" La tecnologia che, legata alla finanza, pretende di essere l'unica soluzione dei problemi, di fatto non è in grado di vedere il mistero delle molteplici relazioni che esistono tra le cose, e per questo a volte risolve un problema creandone altri."

Cinema Fonte Nova, 1985 - 2015

foto: mariadaspalavras

Era um cinema muito aprazível num centro comercial que foi o melhor de Lisboa durante uns bons anos. O primeiro filme a que aqui assisti foi "O Ano do Dragão" de Michael Cimino em Junho de 1986 e, o último, um excelente "Os Maias" de João Botelho em Novembro de 2014. Passei uns bons momentos no escuro destas salas que sempre tiveram uma boa programação. No passado dia 21 de Maio fecharam as portas e Benfica ficou um pouco mais pobre....

A Medeia Filmes explorava estas salas desde 1995.
