Dinner and a Movie: THE GODFATHER at the Screening Room
See the film, eat the cannoli
Is there a film more suited to a dinner-and-a-movie experience than The Godfather? Probably not, and that means Amherst’s Screening Room is the place to be on April 6. Dinner from My Tomato Pie will be served at 6:30 p.m., and Francis Ford Coppola’s mafia class follows at 7 p.m. Here’s why you need to be ready to watch—and to dine.
The food is movie-accurate: Screening Room founder/owner Bob Golibersuch says the buffet dinner by My Tomato Pie “recreates the spaghetti sauce recipe described in the movie.” It’s Clemenza-approved!
Yes, there’s cannoli: In addition to dinner, the $30 ticket price includes a movie ticket, soda/coffee, and cannoli.
It’s a blast for fans of the film: “It’s always a fun event,” Golibersuch says. “We have been doing it for about four years, every seven to eight months, rotating between The Godfather and The Godfather Part II. People just love the whole theme. It’s a fun dinner and movie evening all in one spot.” He adds that a Godfather beer/wine tasting, trivia, and movie screening night is scheduled for April 12.
It’s The Godfather, dude: One of the greatest films ever made, presented in unique and memorable fashion? Like Luca Brasi at Sonny Corleone’s wedding, you’ll be honored and grateful to attend.
