There is an intrinsic link between food and films since the advent of the moving picture. Excitement, nourishment, and comfort are gained in the consumption of grand cinema or a great meal. From the gourmet to guilty pleasures, classics of the culinary and the silver screen go together like... well popcorn and a movie!
That's why we're proud to announce we've partnered with Discover Newport to host a Foodie Film Festival in tandem with Newport Restaurant Week. What to expect: a week of films focused on food, from the classic 80's rom-com Mystic Pizza, and family friendly favorite Ratatouille, to an exclusive look at new films The Art of Eating: The Life of M.F.K. Fisher and Love, Charlie, and so much more. Have a delicious meal in town and come see a beloved favorite, a rare film delicacy, or experience a new sensation on the JPT big screen... and if you get hungry again, we've got plenty of treats!
