Symbolism in 'Cinema Paradiso'?

I think the movie theatre itself, the lion's mouth, kissing scenes of all movies, and burned films or photos are important.. I think they mean somthing special as a symbol but its hard for me to tell exactly what they mean. What do you think?

When is your assignment paper due? (do I kid?)

Not all creators are out symbolism and whatnot. They're often out to convey feelings. It's all in the eyes of the viewer.

Why don't you tell us what you think they mean, and we'll agree or disagree.
