Ahram Online, , Sunday 27 Sep 2020
Cinema Masr includes 65 students presenting on stage around 40 scenes from memorable Egyptian films in a dramatic context created by acclaimed director Khaled Galal


Renowned Egyptian director Khaled Galal and a large cast from the Artistic Creativity Centre will continue performing their successful play 'Cinema Masr' at the Cairo Opera House's Hanager Open Air Theatre for three successive nights starting Monday.



The play, which has seen huge success among audiences and critics, has been staged for dozens of nights since its premier last summer, with many first-class artists attending and some being honoured during the show.



Cinema Masr, whose cast includes 65 students presenting on stage around 40 scenes from memorable Egyptian films in a dramatic context created by the director, is expected to show in Alexandria in October.



Khaled Galal is head of the Actor's Studio, operating under the Artistic Creativity Centre, which he also manages as well as heading the Cultural Production Affairs Sector.



Under Galal, during the past two decades, hundreds of actors enrolled at the studio have graduated and entered the theatre and film scene, with its most successful play being Qahwa Sada (Black Coffee), which premiered in 2008 and whose cast have become some of the most popular and active actors in Egypt.



Amid strict safety measures to avoid spreading Covid-19, Egypt resumed cultural activities in July with most public events held at outdoor venues.
