While some people’s idea of dinner and a movie means ordering pizza and firing up Netflix, some like to enjoy a fancy night out on the town and take in an artsy film that usually has subtitles. The Speed Art Museum is offering an experience like the latter, in what they’re calling “Cinecusine at the Speed” on Wednesday, Sept. 21.
The film being screened is “Ants on a Shrimp,” a 2016 documentary about the world’s highest rated restaurant, NOMA, relocating from Copenhagen to Tokyo for one week only. It was the most creative and elaborate pop-up restaurant in history, and the folks at Wiltshire at the Speed have created a three-course meal inspired by the film.
Those interested can either buy a ticket to the film only, or enjoy dinner before the screening. Tickets for the meal and film are $130 ($120 for members), and tickets to the film only are $9 ($7 for members). Cocktails and appetizers begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by the main meal at 6 p.m., and then the film will screen at 8 p.m.
Reservations are required, since dinner seating is limited to 50.
