Friday Film Club: Big Night
November 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
“Big Night” is one of the great food movies, and yet it is so much more. It is about food not as a subject but as a language–the language by which one can speak to gods, can create, can seduce, can aspire to perfection. There is a moment in the movie when a timpano is sliced open, and the audience sighs with simple delight.
The movie exists in the real world, where you can go broke selling great food. It tells the story of two brothers, recent immigrants to America, who run a restaurant named Paradise. The older brother, named Primo (Tony Shalhoub), is a genius as a chef. The younger brother, named Secondo (Stanley Tucci), knows it. – Roger Ebert
Films are shown Friday Afternoon at 1 PM in our upstairs theater for adults 18 & up.
Hot Tea, Pastries & Popcorn served and discussion after all movies.
For November we are all about being Thankful for Food & Drink.
We travel to Wine Country in Northern California and hope all the vineyards stay safe from fires.
We then go into the main course with the Big Night, and get ready for our Thanksgiving Feasts with Julie & Julia!
WE are CLOSED for Thanksgiving Holiday on Thursday, November 28, and Friday, November 29.
