FREE Friday Night Film Screening - Eat Drink Man Woman

Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) directs Eat Drink Man Woman - come join us for a Friday night at the movies (and maybe dinner afterward!)

Eat Drink Man Woman will be screened in the Meyer Auditorium at the Freer Gallery. This is a free screening open to the public and we do not have reserved seats.

Eat Drink Man Woman will be a popular movie screening and you will have to be in line by 6:30P at the Meyer Auditorium to be sure of getting a seat.

I will try to sit in a left aisle seat in the middle section of the theater. Please look for me there as you come into the auditorium. It is unlikely that we will all be able to sit together, but please say hi once you get a seat!

The screening starts at 7:00P sharp and latecomers will not be seated.

AFTER THE MOVIE: Since the screening is on a Friday night and this is most definitely a foodie movie, I am asking for a show of hands of who would like to venture to Full Kee Restaurant in Chinatown for snacks or dinner afterward. Although inexpensive, Full Kee has been rated one of the top 100 Chinese restaurants in the USA. We would meet in the lobby of the theater right after the screening and walk two blocks to the L'Enfant Plaza Metro Station to take the metro to the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro Station.

ABOUT: Eat Drink Man Woman

Official Trailer

Generations clash around the dining table in Ang Lee’s charming comedy-drama about widowed master chef Chu (the extraordinary Sihung Lung) and his three thoroughly modern daughters. A foodie’s delight, the plot revolves around Chu’s elaborately prepared Sunday dinners—gatherings that trace the sometimes surprising changes in relationships both inside and outside the family.

“The movie's main appeal—beyond stomach yearnings caused by its cuisine—comes from the actors, who infuse their archetypal roles with comedic appeal” (Desson Thomson, Washington Post).

Dir.: Ang Lee, Taiwan/United States, 1994, 124 min., English and Mandarin with English subtitles

    Hi Peter
    Last night was my 1st time and I totally enjoyed the film and the whole idea.

    After the film I met two people who had never gone as well, but one was a woman deborah, debbie? who sat at the table next to yours- very petite woman with long salt/pepper hair from Takoma Pk-
    she was just told by a friend of hers about this event - so I met her after the film in the lobby -but she's not a part of this group...yet.

    I gave her a ride to the restaurant along with Bruce M. but when it ended we did not exchange info -unfortunately
    would you or anyone in your group have any idea how to get in touch with her?

    I was seating at back table and she was sitting in table next to yours in the corner.

    Thnks, anyone
