During our temporary closure, we're excited to bring you opportunities to watch new release titles on your home screen while directly supporting Amherst Cinema. When you watch these Virtual Cinema films at home, the cost of the digital "ticket" is split between the film distributor and Amherst Cinema—just like with a ticket purchased at our box office.


Based on the novel by Jorge Amado, this Golden Globe and BAFTA-nominated comedy follows the strange events that befall Dona Flor (Sônia Braga) after she is left a widow by the death of her wild, irresponsible husband. Shortly after remarrying, she finds her new, less-than-satisfying sex life revived when the ghost of her late husband unexpectedly returns.

Newly restored, the “marvelously funny” (Time Magazine) DONA FLOR AND HER TWO HUSBANDS was an instant international hit, launching the career of the “bewitchingly beautiful” (People) Sonia Braga and becoming (at the time) Brazil's highest grossing box office feature.
