Monthly movie at DoY - Chef!

The votes are in, Chef it is!!  8:45 showing works best for me so putting that up. Suggest meeting at Circus Circus (across the street) around 8pm before if people want a drink and chat.  We will head over to the cinema around 8:30pm.  See you there!!

Director Jon Favreau (SWINGERS, IRON MAN) returns to his indie comedy roots with this alternately acerbic and heartwarming tale. LA chef Carl Casper (Favreau) was once hailed as a culinary wunderkind, but now finds himself stuck behind the same stoves dispensing the same slick fare night after night, his creativity stifled.

The arrival of a hotshot food critic (Platt, TV’s Fargo) seems to be exactly the new gastronomic opportunity Carl’s been waiting for, but his boss (Hoffman) insists that he stick to the usual kitchen script. The critic duly tweets a hilariously scathing review, and Carl explodes in an outpouring of rage that goes viral.

Mouthwatering foodie scenes – supervised by real-life LA chef Roy Choi – are matched by touching comedy drama in this deceptively profound story of family, friendship and artistic integrity.

    A little lighter than expected but did invoke a few wry smiles from me so, all in all, a good Sunday night viewing.

    A really easy to watch feel-good foodie movie with a lively soundtrack. A great way to spend a Sunday evening in good company!

      Look forward to seeing you all later! Do we need to book in advance or do you think will we be ok to get tickets on the door?

      I suspect you'll get tickets on the door as it's a big theatre.

    Guys I've been fighting a cold and sadly feeling a bit worse so don't think I can make it. But I've booked a ticket if someone wants it. Send me your email and I can email it to you. Hope you all enjoy! Chris can you step in as host?

    Chef looks like fun! Jon Favreau writes, directs and stars in what is described as 'a satisfying road trip about cooking, family, friendships and passion.' There's a 6.30 and a 20.45 showing at Duke of York's.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
