Last year's Wine, Food & Film nights at our beloved independent cinema The Belcourt were a pretty wonderful way to uplift a wintry Monday night. The warm glow of the lobby, a friendly crowd, a sip of wine and a bite of something — this low-key event was one of my favorites last year.
Tonight is the first WFF, featuring wine from Village Wines, Thanksgiving bites from Whole Foods, and a Charlie Chaplin film, The Kid. The imbibing and noshing commence at 5:30 p.m. and the film begins at 7. Village Wines and Whole Foods will be taking orders for Thanksgiving, by the way, so you can get that done while you're there.
The cost is $20 for Belcourt members, $25 for nonmembers and free if you buy a Superstar ticket to Oscar Night America, The Belcourt's very fun Oscar party.
Buying in advance is a good habit — some of last year's WFF sessions sold out. Click here to land to buy a ticket for tonight.
And here is the link to go ahead score tickets to Oscar Night America on Sunday, Feb 27. (Superstar tickets are $50 for members, $75 for nonmembers and include admission to the Oscar night gala at 7 p.m. with open bar until 9 p.m. Higher levels get you more perks — check the site for info.)
Snagging an advance ticket to the Oscar gala will get you in free to see Chaplin tonight, and you can rest easy knowing you'll be having a blast when they roll out the red carpet in February.
Two more Wine, Food & Film dates are set so far: Jan. 10 and Feb. 7.
