All bets are ON this holiday as Nitehawk Cinema and Victory Brewing Company team up for a special holiday Film Feast presentation of TRADING PLACES!
What happens when you combine the comic genius of Eddie Murphy with Dan Aykroyd and director John Landis? You get a timeless comedy classic laced with sidesplitting, satiric humor. Murphy stars as a small-time con artist who gets a chance to switch lives with Aykroyd’s big-time stock market maven. But their reversal of fortunes is just a cruel joke perpetrated by two bored mega-rich brothers as part of an idle bet. When the truth comes out…the consequences are sheer comedy gold!
Our five course menu paired with beer from Victory Brewing Company will surely put you into the holiday spirit (if you know what we mean). As always, the best part is that each dish will be served at the moment its inspirational scene comes on the screen!
