  • Article



Casa da Música brings back cinema, from February 11 to 21, with the best movies of all time. It's Invicta.Música.films. week.

We seek beauty in life trough culture and art. Since the dawn of time, mankind turns to art, whatever form, to make things meaningful.

One can enjoy and appreciate its form or rather the ideas and meaning the artist has tried to convey with that image.

So, too, with film. It tells a story or it may educate and inform us. It may engage and develop an emotional response or it may manipulate viewer response while inspiring or disgusting its audience.

Invicta.Música.films will definitely inspire you, starting with Charlie Chaplin's classic, City Lights (1931), a silent movie that has entertained many and still continues to inspire movie lovers eighty-five years after its release.
