Time Out Beirut and Save Beirut Heritage have the great pleasure of inviting you to a screening of Joana Hadji Thomas and Khalil Joreige’s 1999 feature film ‘Autour de la Maison Rose’ (Around the Pink House)
Every month, Time Out Beirut and Save Beirut Heritage invite you to enjoy films on the theme of Beirut’s heritage, screened in traditional buildings so we can see them and reflect on their past and future.

After more than a decade, they receive a visit from the man who has inherited the house; they have ten days to find a new home so that he can turn it into a commercial center. As the neighborhood discusses the problem, tensions emerge between the love of the old and the demands and advantages of the new.
