Dinner and a Movie
Thursday, August 24 - 6:30
Our favorite food film of all time, Big Night, came out in 1996. A cult classic, it's a hysterical account of the sometimes heated relationship of two brothers who open a very authentic Italian restaurant in not-so-worldly New Jersey of the 1950's.
Tony Shaloub, Stanley Tucci, Minnie Driver, Isabella Rossellini, Liev Schriber, Marc Anthony, Allison Janney
The music, the dialogue, the cinematography, are just perfect. At the center of it all, is the food: A huge feast and all the love and care and drama that goes into it.
We will screen the film in the private screening room at The Heldrich across the street, beginning at 6:30, truffled popcorn included. Immediately afterwards, we will recreate the feast from the film in the dining room of Catherine Lombardi. We will dine at large communal tables and great fun will be had by all.
We have once again partnered with the folks at Farnese Vini in Southern Italy. This dynamic group is producing some remarkable and rule-bending country wines that are absolutely delicious and stunning values. They will offer a complimentary glass of wine with the film. Click for a trailer
