Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
World class movies and a top notch dinner
Fancy a different cinema experience? Then why not get down to Roxy's Bar And Screen and catch great new films, served up with a side of modern European food. With an emphasis on healthy ingredients from the nearby food market this is food and film, but not as you know it. This time around it's Florence Foster Jenkins. In the 1940s, New York socialite Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep) dreams of becoming a great opera singer. Unfortunately, her ambition far exceeds her talent. The voice Florence hears in her head is beautiful, but to everyone else it's pretty lousy. Her husband St. Clair (Hugh Grant) goes to extreme lengths to make sure his wife never finds out how awful she truly is. When Florence announces her plans for a concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair soon realizes that he's facing his greatest challenge yet. "A comic lark that packs a satisfying emotional wallop and continues the balls-to-the-wall career victory lap Meryl Streep has been on since turning 60 years old seven years ago." – New York Observer "This is an intelligent, deeply moving film that is about so much more than a rich lady with delusional dreams about her own musical abilities." – Chicago Sun Time Sample menu: Burgers - Roxy beef burger with bacon, cheese, lettuce + tomato - Roxy grilled chicken burger with tomato, garlic mayo + lettuce - The peppercorn pile-up: lettuce, tomato and a steak burger finished with peppercorn sauce - Butternut squash apple burger with caramelised sage aioli (v) - Sweet potato veggie burger with avocado (v) All burgers are served with chips + coleslaw Mains - Grilled rump steak with frites, green salad and a grilled mushroom served with peppercorn sauce - Marinated rump of lamb with mash potato grilled veg and red wine jus - Char-grilled corn-fed chicken supreme with celeriac green beans and yell jus - Freshly made vegetable lasagne with chips and salad (v) - Freshly made beef lasagne with chips and salad - Grilled sea bass fillet with asparagus, basil oil marinated new potatoes and sundry tomato cream sauce Certificate: PG.
