Nitehawk Cinema Presents
FILM FEASTS: TRUE ROMANCE
Sponsored by Lagunitas
The crazy little love story of Clarence and Alabama.
Spend a romantic dinner at Nitehawk with Alabama, Clarence, and the mob for our special Valentine’s Day Film Feasts presentation of TRUE ROMANCE. As always, the screening includes delicious beverage and food menu pairings related to the film. The best part? You’ll be served each course during the specific moments that inspired the film so you can experience edible sensations while watching the action unfold on-screen!
The Quentin Tarantino penned True Romance certainly isn’t your run-of-the-mill love story but the passion (borderline obsession) between Clarence and his reformed hooker wife Alabama sure is palpable. A modern day Bonnie and Clyde, they meet, fall in love, and then proceed to steal a whole lot of drugs from her pimp. As with most things in love and life, things are never easy (there’s murders and mobsters) but the one thing that remains true is their romance. The film includes stellar performances by Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, Dennis Hopper, Brad Pitt (as a total pothead), and James Gandolfini. Even “Elvis” makes a cameo.
