Dinner and a Movie

We’ll stream a movie once a month, including some past favorites from previous festivals. Approximately one hour before the event, participants receive an email with access information for the film, live film intro, and post-film discussion by Zoom. Start watching and eating together at 6:30 p.m. MST. If you can’t join the live presentation, you may still access the film and recorded post-film discussion until 12:30 a.m. Saturday, the next morning.


Next Up: Trattoria – Friday August 21, 6:30pm

A dramedy about a workaholic chef and his estranged son who reconnect and heal their past through cooking. Trattoria director Jason Wolos will speak. Tickets will go on sale on August 10.

How Dinner and a Movie works

Each Dinner and a Movie event will consist of:

  • A featured food film available to stream online
  • Specific recommended meals related to the film that viewers can order, pick up or have delivered, and eat while watching the movie
  • For home cooks: Suggested Savory Spice Shop recipes for dishes to be made and paired with the film
  • Speakers for a film introduction and post-film discussion via Zoom
  • A $10 viewing fee

Approximately one hour before the event, all participants will receive an email with access information for the streaming film as well as for the live film introduction and post-film discussion and Q&A on Zoom. Participants will start watching, and eating together, at 6:30 p.m. (MST). Those who can’t join the live presentation can still access the film and recorded post-film discussion until 12:30 a.m. (MST)  the next morning, Saturday.
