Junior Cinematheque - Palácio Foz, at Praça dos Restauradores, on Saturdays at 03:00pm

There is a charming project in Lisbon, where the permanent exhibition Pré-Cinema provides magical moments for children and adults, based on the prehistory of the art of cinema: the Cinemateca Júnior, a service of the Cinemateca Portuguesa – Museu do Cinema, created in 2007 and aimed at children and youth spectators. The aim is to watch, in a room that was once the most luxurious in Lisbon, the film proposed by Cinemateca Júnior. These range from "Bucha e Estica" to Disney movies, through to musical classics and westerns. There is no popcorn, but there are museum pieces from the cinema that will dazzle you.

There are more than a hundred black-and-white photographs, most of them unpublished, covering various genres and themes. Kept in the director's personal archive for decades, these static images reveal a facet hitherto unknown to Manoel de Oliveira: that of a photographer. (in Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation)
