The new Speed Museum’s emphasis on cinema, and the return of food service to the museum was the perfect opportunity to combine new ideas, which have resulted in the CineCuisine program at the Speed Art Museum, 2035 S. 3rd St.
Once every three months, beginning April 21, when the Speed film program presents a special movie, Wiltshire at the Speed will offer a special dinner inspired by a food-oriented film, according to a story in the Courier-Journal.
The first CineCuisine event will be a showing of the documentary “King Georges,” about a famed French restaurant in Philadelphia. Wiltshire at the Speed chef Coby Ming will create a 3-course meal with wine pairings, inspired by the movie.
The evening will begin with Champagne, cocktails and passed appetizers at 5 p.m. with dinner at 5:30 p.m. The film starts at 7 p.m. Tickets – which are limited to 50 – for the dinner and movie cost $130. The film only is $9 (discounts are available for Speed members).
For those who don’t want the full commitment of the sit-down meal, a light meal and wine pairing will be available in the lobby. No eating in the theater itself, but patrons can bring in their drinks.
