MARIE ANTOINETTE with Pastries & Champagne
Friday, January 19 @ 9:15 pm
Party with Marie Antoinette and her royal court like it’s the 1780s and your home is Versailles. Each ticket includes a champagne cocktail and decadent puff pastry from Ladurée, the same french bakery that provided the pastries featured in the film!
“A thoroughly modern confection, blending insouciance and sophistication, heartfelt longing and self-conscious posing with the guileless self-assurance of a great pop song.” -A.O. Scott
Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, Marie Antoinette is an electrifying yet intimate retelling of the turbulent life of history’s favorite villainess. Kirsten Dunst portrays the ill-fated child princess who married France’s young and indifferent King Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman). Feeling isolated in a royal court rife with scandal and intrigue, Marie Antoinette defied both royalty and commoners by living like a rock star, filling the void with parties, pastries, and champagne, only further sealing her fate.
Dir. Sofia Coppola. 2006. 123 min.
Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket for $2 off any drink at the bar following the screening.
