Running until April 11th, the Cinépolis Foundation’s social outreach program entitled “Let’s all go to Cinépolis Haiti” will screen 11 movies on donated Christie digital cinema projectors reaching more than 70,000 people devastated by the February 12th earthquake.

“Let’s all go to Cinépolis Haiti” is a joint effort between the Cinépolis Foundation and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, as well as the support of the Ministry of Culture of Haiti, FilmAid International, DOR Internacional and Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc. This partnership aids in the reconstruction of Haiti by promoting positive messages and by bringing a moment of relaxation and joy as the country continues its recovery.

Lorena Guillén-Laris, Executive Director of Cinépolis Foundation notes: ‘Let’s all go to Cinépolis Haiti’ seeks to provide glimmers of hope and moments of family life that contribute to the emotional state of our Haitian brothers and sisters. We want to laugh, dream and be inspired by positive messages. The short films will encourage them to be strong and move forward.

The movies will be shown nightly on a 15m (49.2ft) inflatable screen in shelters located throughout Port au Prince and surrounding areas and will include both short and feature length, Hollywood movies. The short films theming on survival, unity and civic participation include: “I’m Still Alive”, “Grand Mère”, “Mechanistic” and “Volunteer”, as well as, shorts recorded by survivors of the earthquake. The full feature movies include: “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea?, “Ice Age?, “Ice Age: The Meltdown” and “Night at the Museum” – the last three are being supplied by 20th Century Fox. The long and short films are spoken or translated into French and Creole, the national languages of Haiti.
