On 25 June, Pioner and MasterCard will screen yet another classic film as part of the “Priceless Cities of Film” festival: the romantic comedy “Roman Holiday” with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

The famous “Roman Holiday” was the first Hollywood film shot entirely in Europe. Director William Wilder consciously turned down Hollywood set pieces in favor of shooting in the Italian capitol. As a result, the film became one of the first international hits and propelled Rome, along with its unique charms and landmarks, to widespread fame and recognition. Even tours through the “scenes” of “Roman Holiday” still enjoy popularity today. The part of Anna became the first major role in the still relatively unknown Audrey Hepburn’s career, and brought her an Oscar. The film also won an Oscar for best screenplay and best costumes, along with ten other nominations.

Every month there will be specially reworked set menus at Pioner Cinema’s Café Pion, dedicated to the city of the month. MasterCard cardholders can receive a discount on café’s full menu (excluding alcohol) and with purchase of tickets to a screening in the “Priceless Cities in Cinema” festival, they are welcome to a surprise from Pion’s chef.
