Join us for our third-annual Film Feast and enjoy a contemporary classic along with a thematically paired multi-course meal! Once a powerful Hollywood director, James Whale (Ian McKellen, in an Academy Award®-nominated role) has long retired and is in increasingly poor health. His stalwart housekeeper, Hanna (Academy Award® nominee Lynn Redgrave), quietly disapproves of Whale’s catty candor and faceless, nameless parade of young gay lovers. But when the director takes an interest in new gardener Clayton Boone (Academy Award® winner Brendan Fraser), a former Marine and Korean War veteran, it seems to be for something more than his usual casual conquest.

Don’t miss this chance to sip and dine along to this delirious, delicious melodrama — winner of the 1998 Academy Award® for Best Adapted Screenplay — in its 25th-anniversary year.
