Good eats, delicious drinks and classic cinema – how much more summer do you need?
Love films and food? Perfect, cos so do we. This is the final screening of a sold-out series of events in association with fellow event masters Behind This Wall – matching classic movies with great themes and grub. This week's film will be City Of God – the seminal Brazilian movie depicting life growing up in the favelas and the trouble that comes when drugs and gangs are thrown into the equation. With the screening out on the Oval Space terrace and the food sure to be darn tasty, this is a top way to spend a summer evening. The food options include: - Grilled lemon and garlic chicken with a piri-piri marinade - Herby BBQ skewers made with "queijo de coalho", served with dipping sauces (V) - BBQ corn (side dish) If you fancy taking your experience up a notch, pick the Full Package tickets to get your mitts on a Caipirinha cocktail.
