Aspen Film is taking the idea of dinner and a movie to new levels. Combining fine food and film, the nonprofit screens “Haute Cuisine” at the Isis Theater followed by a private dinner at French bistro Rustique on Wednesday, Aug. 14. The benefit combines the senses and encourages attendees to Savor Summer.
Set to come out this fall, the film is a sneak peek of The Weinstein Company’s upcoming release. It’s based on the real-life story of the personal chef (Hortense Laborie) to former French president François Mitterrand, who discovered that battling the male-dominated world was tougher than working with the president himself. It previously screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and fits the category of classic films for food lovers.
Tickets are $150. The film screens at 6:30 p.m., followed by a complete French meal at 8 p.m. For more information, visit Aspen Film.
