Following the successful proof of concept events The Godfather dinner in 2022 and The Gleaners and I dinner in 2023, Rialto Cinemas and Sonoma County Chef extraordinaire Michele Anna Jordan are thrilled to announce the 2024 Dinner and a Movie Series. Join us on a cinematic and culinary adventure as Rialto Cinemas owner Ky Boyd and Michele Anna Jordan combine their programming and culinary expertise to take diners on five unique cinematic celebrations in 2024.

Journey with us to Paris on August 18th with Ky’s favorite movie, Jean-Jaques Beineix’s DIVA from 1981.  Two tapes, two Parisian mob killers, one corrupt policeman, an opera fan, a teenage thief, and the coolest philosopher ever filmed all twist their way through this stylish and intricate thriller.  Dinner will feature the best baguettes with delicious handmade butter and that classic French meal Summer vegetables, farm eegs, stewed salt cod, and Michele’s handmade aioli using local garlic. Dessert will be a peach galette, with ice cream alongside.  What better way to dine on a summer night?

On October 13th, we celebrate one of Michele’s favorite films ROSEMARY’S BABY (1968), starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, and Ruth Gordon.  A young couple trying for a baby moves into an aging, ornate apartment building on Central Park where they find themselves surrounded by peculiar neighbors.  What’s for dinner?  Savory velvet mousse with nightingale epis, late summer tomato soup, leg of lamb with Turkish rice pilaf featuring rice, braised lamb, chickpeas, spearmint, rosemary, and cilantro served with pepperonata, a roasted sweet pepper salad.  For dessert – can’t you guess?  Check back in August for details about our Minnie & Roman Castavet’s Costume Contest.

Seating for each dinner is limited to 40 people. No meal substitutions.
