Thursday, April 23 at 7:30pm outside the Tang, SkidEats and Film Appreciation Troupe will present a free screening of Chef–written and directed by Jon Favreau and featuring Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr..
Here’s a synopsis of the film, which you can watch a trailer for below:
Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what’s next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen–and zest for life and love.
It pretty much sounds like a live action Ratatouille featuring the guy who played Sid the Sloth. I’d fuck with that. The screening will also feature free food from 9 Miles East and Battenkill Ice Cream. If you’re not keeping tally, that’s a free movie, free pizza, and free ice cream. So unless you’re a vegan who hates the medium of film, there’s totally something for you here!
In the event of inclement weather or the rapture, the event will be moved to Friday, April 24 at 6:30pm in Gannett.
