This is a monthly Mission series featuring a movie based on a theme of food and spirits. Your admission includes food, drinks and a movie. Sit back, have a glass of wine or a cocktail, enjoy your meal and watch a fine piece of cinematography!
This wonderful film (and book) made theater-goers across the land hungry for well-made Italian food. On this night, enjoy Edgefield wines paired with the actual menu taken directly from the film (and book). Guests will sit at long tables (with seats set up so that you can watch the movie) and will be served this incredible meal family-style.

Primo begins to prepare his masterpiece, a feast of a lifetime, for the brothers' big night...
