Beyond Popcorn launches with Big Night

Bristol Film Festival is pleased to launch its Beyond Popcorn series – pairing film with food experiences – with a combined film screening and candlelit dining evening in Averys’ historic wine cellars, kindly sponsored by Nisbets.

The film, Big Night, is a critically acclaimed and award-winning comedy that was written and directed by Stanley Tucci, who also stars in it alongside Ian Holm, Minnie Driver and Tony Shalhoub.

Guests will enjoy sparkling wine on arrival and a brief introduction to the film by Festival Director Owen Franklin, before watching the film, which focuses on the darkly comic trials and tribulations of an Italian restaurant in 1950s New Jersey. After the film, the wonderfully talented team at Cherry Picked catering will serve a three course Italian-themed dining experience, with wines selected by Averys’ resident experts.

It’s a brilliant pairing of movie and meal at one of our most popular venues, so join us for an unforgettable evening.
