If the Center for Documentary Studies' Audio Under the Stars series is an emerging hallmark of Durham summers, then Durham Cinematheque's Movies in the Park is a well-established one. To kick off his tenth season of showing vintage film oddities outdoors at The Leaf in Durham Central Park, archivist par excellence Tom Whiteside has zeroed in on the theme of "Crazy Italian Night," a cinematic fantasia he describes as "a fractured narrative with the love-life adventures of the lovely young Sophia Loren intercut with clips from travelogues and documentaries." Bring your own chair and picnic if you'd like, and come back on June 15 for "Old News (and How We Got It)" and on July 14 for "Really Big, Really Small."
