Dinner + Movie: The Hundred-Foot Journey
// 6 p.m. What Why How We Eat exhibition + Auditorium
Gather together for a family-style dinner served in the What Why How We Eat exhibition followed by a movie in the auditorium. Share dishes prepared by Muse chefs inspired by the film, then enjoy a screening of The Hundred-Foot Journey telling the story of food bridging the gap between cultures and neighbors. Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is an extraordinarily talented and largely self-taught culinary novice. When he and his family are displaced from their native India and settle in a quaint French village, they decide to open an Indian eatery. However, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the proprietress of an acclaimed restaurant just 100 feet away, strongly objects. War erupts between the two establishments, until Mallory recognizes Kadam's impressive epicurean gifts and takes him under her wing. Directed by Lasse Hallström (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?, Chocolat) 2014, 124 min. $40 dinner plus movie (includes Polar Nights admission). Registration required: bit.ly/dinnermovie100ft. Movie only included with Polar Nights admission.
