La Plancha del Mar plans a pre-movie buffet on the third floor of the Marketplace.
They promise, "Scrumptious braised beef and preserved lemon chicken, a variety of vegetarian items and a special dessert."
Then when the lights go down, it's a free screening of 1944's Best Picture of the Year, Casablanca.
Interestingly, an e-mail about the event also included word that St John Film's fall showings are sponsored, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts. Kudos to whomever thought up the idea of applying for, and then got, the money.
