Farrelli's Cinema Supper Club brings Julia Childs-inspired cuisine to moviegoers
We can't help but get hungry whenever superstar chef Julia Childs is mentioned, so why not eat her food while watching a movie about her? Now you can at Farrelli's Cinema Supper Club in Scottsdale, where moviegoers may chow down on Childs-inspired cuisine while watching Julie & Julia. The film stars Meryl Streep as Childs and features her oh-so-delicious recipes, all of which Julie (Amy Adams) strives to cook within a year.
Nosh on fancy dishes such as bouef bourguignon (Childs' recipe), French onion soup and baked brie a l'orange, and wash it all down with a French wine. Items range from $5.95-$16.95 and vary daily.
Owner Wendy Farrelli says the promotion has been a huge success so far and is great for people looking for something beyond the typical popcorn-and-candy movie night.
"It's so fun to be eating and drinking French things while you're watching this movie about this wonderful woman and French food," Farrelli says. "I think it's a really fun, interactive experience you don't get all that often if you go just to a restaurant or just to a movie."
The French menu is available to audience members of any movie when Julie & Julia is playing. For more information on showtimes, log on to www.farrellis.com.
