As winter draws near what better way to spend an evening indoors, watching romantic art-house films in comfort and style.
The Le Bonheur Manor house is showing art films, ranging from silent gems to modern international festival winners, on the last Friday of every month for just R35 a person, including a glass of Le Bonheur wine.
To make it even more unique and nostalgic, you can dine on some delicious tapas beforehand. For R95, sit down with fellow movie-goers in the dining room, get acquainted and enjoy the delicious tapas accompanied by Le Bonheur wines and literally get a taste of what the film is about. With every movie, themed tapas selections linked to the movie will be served and explained in an easy-going relaxed atmosphere.
April’s movie is Brick Lane, an uplifting tale of a beautiful young Bangladeshi woman who leaves her beloved country and family behind for an arranged marriage and a new life. As the movie is set in London, the tapas will be a take on traditional English pub-style food.
In May the film La Vie en Rose will be celebrated with delicate French puff pastries and desserts to highlight the life of songstress Edith Piaf.
In June, traditional Spanish tapas will introduce Volver, a film about immigrants from various Spanish provinces that share their dreams, lives and fortunes.
The tapas and movie evenings can accommodate up to 40 guests. They start at 18:30 for 19:00. Reservations are essential. For more information on the films or to make a booking please go to www.cinemuse.co.za.
