Orpheus by Jean Cocteau & The Curry Pot Food Truck!

Jean Cocteau's update of the Orpheus myth depicts a famous poet (Jean Marais), scorned by the Left Bank youth, and his love for both his wife, Eurydice (Marie Déa), and a mysterious princess (Maria Casarès). Seeking inspiration, the poet follows the princess from the world of the living to the land of the dead, through Cocteau's famous mirrored portal. Orpheus's peerless visual poetry and dreamlike storytelling represent the legendary Cocteau at the height of his powers. Curry Pot Food Truck will be parked out front of the Film Bar.

Cinema Saturdays Featuring Bollywood

Saturday, January 20

Cinema Saturday featuring Bollywood movies and Curry Pot Food Truck at The Film Bar!

What is "Bollywood"?
Bollywood is the name given to the Mumbai-based Hindi-language film industry in India. It is considered to be the largest in the world in terms of number of films produced, and maybe also the number of tickets sold. 

The term "Bollywood" was created by conflating Bombay (the city now called Mumbai) and Hollywood.

Bollywood films are usually musicals. Few movies are made without at least one song-and-dance number. Indian audiences expect full value for their money; they want songs and dances, love interest, comedy and dare-devil thrills, all mixed up in a three hour long extravaganza with intermission. Such movies are called Masala Movies, after the spice mixture masala. Like masala, these movies have everything.

The plots are often melodramatic. They frequently employ formulaic ingredients such as star-crossed lovers, corrupt politicians, twins separated at birth, conniving villains, angry parents, courtesans with hearts of gold, dramatic reversals of fortune, and convenient coincidences.

We will be pairing our Bollywood event with the delicious food provided by The Curry Pot Food Truck. Curry and Bollywood!! Yum!

Our food trucks for this week are The Curry Pot on Thursday and Saturday and Nations Creations on Friday!

Fill up a growler with beer or coffee, and get 2-for-1 movie rentals with growler fills on Fridays and Saturdays!

A year after the death of the artist, Vincent van Gogh, Postman Roulin gets his slacker son, Armand, to hand deliver the artist's final letter written to his now late brother, Theo, to some worthy recipient after multiple failed postal delivery attempts. Although disdainful of this seemingly pointless chore, Armand travels to Auvers-sur-Oise where a purported close companion to Vincent, Dr. Gachet, lives. Having to wait until the doctor returns from business, Armand meets many of the people of that village who not only knew Vincent, but were apparently also models and inspirations for his art. In doing so, Armond becomes increasingly fascinated in the psyche and fate of Van Gogh as numerous suspicious details fail to add up. However, as Armond digs further, he comes to realize that Vincent's troubled life is as much a matter of interpretation as his paintings and there are no easy answers for a man whose work and tragedy would only be truly appreciated in the future.
