$15 includes film & small plate

Presented by Prez Hall & Lola's Local Food Lab, each film is accompanied by a small plate menu inspired by the film, and introduced by series producers Vanessa Downing (Prez Hall) and Kim Shkapich (Lola's Local Food Lab). This season's theme: TABLE MANNERS: Recipes for Polite Society Explore the confines of class and the balance of personal freedoms in the midst of tight family and social structures, often served before the entrée at dinner. Each film has a different recipe for power and passion as the protagonists hunger for transformation and acceptance. Small plate menu: Firepot Vegetable Soup, Rice paper Spring Rolls, and Almond Dofu (gelatin) (Vegetarian) Screening Thurs. 2/18: RAISE THE RED LANTERN (Orion Classics, 1991) Directed by Yimou Zhang In Mandarin with English subtitles. A rich and disturbing story set in China in the 1920s that follows the four wives of a wealthy merchant, each of whom tries to claim personal agency, sexual attention, and love despite their deeply misogynist and oppressive culture. As Ellen J. Fried points out in her essay in Reel Food (Routledge, 2004), it's the customs and rituals related to food that prove the women's greatest source of social control and manipulation within their domestic situation, from the quality of the meals they prepare to the dining rules they set. Such power, however, comes at a price...

BUY TICKETS HERE FOR THURS. 3/3, 5PM BUY TICKETS HERE FOR FRI. 3/4, 7PM watch the trailer here From the 1960s to the 1980s, the rock radio DJ played an unprecedented creative role in the rock music world. The new feature-length documentary I AM WHAT I PLAY focuses on four well-known North American radio disc jockeys during the heyday of rock radio, when many disc jockeys were given great freedom on the air, had celebrity status, and had a direct connection to the biggest names in rock and roll. As radio became more commercially controlled and new media took hold, these DJ’s had to carve out a new career space for themselves. Has free-form radio died, or has it reinvented itself in unexpected spaces? I Am What I Play combines material shot on location in the 4 cities (Seattle, Boston, New York and Toronto) with rarely seen archival footage of the disc jockeys, the radio stations and well-known rock performers, all complemented by a soundtrack that features many great rock songs of the era.

Good manners and gentlemanly behavior apparently have nothing to do with class as we discover in the season finale.
