Cinematic Escapes returns to Thursday night with "Culinary Delights"!
All showings begin at 7:00 PM in the Community Room

Our September film series is an eclectic mix of films which all have one thing in common:  Food.   Our cinematic buffet begins with a visit to a struggling Italian restaurant in 1950’s New York and is followed with a sidelong road trip through California Wine Country.  These will be paired with the tale of a modern woman following in Julia Child’s footsteps, and garnished with a couple of scrumptious foreign films along with an animated Pixar classic.  Bon Appetit!
