Vonna controls the horizontal, Vonna controls the vertical

Vonna here, with a reminder that I have control of both the theater and the kitchen this month and have made the selections of the movies. That's right! No Zombies, No Action Adventure, No "not yet released" films - okay I can't guarantee than no one will die in these films - but I decided to center the movies around the kitchen and cooking.....and the food served will align around the selected movies' food also.

The doors will be open at 5:30 p.m. on Sat Sept 20th and the first film will begin about 6:15 after sufficient feasting and refreshments.

Our first feature is The Last Supper, a 1996 dark comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Ron Eldard, Annabeth Gish, Jonathan Penner, Courtney B. Vance as self-righteous left-wing grad students whose premeditated murder of right-wing extremists may be pushing the grounds of good taste....and good food!

That will be followed by Big Night (starting about 8:30 p.m.), another 1996 film starring Tony Shalhoub, Stanley Tucci, Minnie Driver, Ian Holm and Isabella Rossellini: A treat for movie lovers and food lovers everywhere - Big Night is the story of two Italian brothers whose superb restaurant is on the brink of bankruptcy. Their only chance is to risk everything they own on one "big night" that will make them or break them.

We look forward to enjoying these films with you all. Hope to see you Saturday!

PS - the next Slaughtered Lamb Cinema event is Saturday, October 4th - the "All Day of The Dead" marathon. More details at the specific blog linked to the right. On Saturday, October 25th we will celebrate the return of 007 with a James Bond party. Please keep checking the updates here, as we'll be polling to decide which Bond film to watch alongside Casino Royale.
