Soares dos Reis National Museum hosts cycle of film and concert

2 de November, 2023

The Salão Piolho cycle, by the Fundação Inatel, debuts this year at the Soares dos Reis National Museum, with a session scheduled for December 1st.


Following the spirit of the old Piolho Cinemas, which were “propagated” through the big cities of the country, through places so often improvised, this is how the Salão Piolho continues in its 7th edition, touring the cities of Leiria, Porto and Lisbon.

Featuring different film and musical genres, from jazz to electronica, including traditional Portuguese music, this year the sessions will be held in emblematic locations in the cities of Leiria, Porto and Lisbon.


One of the main novelties of the edition is the inclusion of the Soares dos Reis National Museum in the list of chosen stages, and in Porto, the cycle will also pass through São Bento Railway Station, Cinema Trindade and Casa das Artes.


In total, 12 cineconcerts will be held, between November and December, in the seventh edition of the Salão Piolho cycle, an initiative of the Inatel Foundation that invites Portuguese musicians to create sound approaches to silent film classics.


This year’s edition begins with three shows in Leiria, on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of November, in a bet by Inatel to take the cycle further. In the Salão Piolho, which takes its name from the places where, in the past, cinema was shown, these classics are accompanied by soundtracks of Portuguese music, from folk, to traditional music, jazz and electronica.
