Almost makes me wish I liked chocolate

Almost!

Our local indie movie theater does some really cool stuff!

When Bean to Bar, local filmmaker Bob Ridgley's documentary about artisan chocolate makers, came to PFC during Doctober - the response was so enthusiastic! The screening sold out in a flash to folks traveling from near and far to partake in a plethora of chocolate sampling from a selection of Washington chocolate makers. Vendors were giving away freshly made liqueur truffles, chocolate themed beauty products and some even featured bars which were competing in the world finals.

At the close of the screening in October, audiences left the theater raving about the film. Requests for an encore have been pouring in, and we're proud to announce that we're bringing it back! Join us this Saturday, December 7 for a Bean to Bar encore - this time with a Holiday twist! The film will begin at 5pm, with a pre-screening reception starting at 4pm. We will be giving away a selection of rare chocolate bars from around the world, and a variety of chocolate makers will again be present - this time with gift baskets and delicious stocking supplies ready for the tree - so come prepared to shop. The Community Food Co-op will also be there with bars available for a donation, which will go to the Bellingham Food Bank, who are working hard to spreading the holiday cheer further throughout our community. Read on for more information, including details about our rare giveaways... hope to see you there!

Giving away chocolate? If that happened around here, it would make Black Friday at Walmart look calm and refined. :wink:

Sounds great!

This theater does really neat things. Several times a year, for instance, they join forces with the most upscale of local caterers, Ciao Thyme, to do Dinner & A Movie nights. I missed this year's Babette's Feast, but I do have January tickets for Mostly Martha. And these are big deal events--costs $125 per person and they sell out the day they're announced which is six months in advance.

I'll be curious to hear how that goes. It sounds like a blast!
