“Big Night” is an intimate look at the immigrant struggle to attain the American dream starring Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci, Isabella Rossellini and Tony Shalhoub.  Set in New Jersey in the 1950’s , Big Night is the story of two brothers, Primo, (Tony Shalhoub) and Secondo, (Stanley Tucci) who come to America and open a bistro that serves the finest in traditional, authentic Italian cuisine.


       Their rival is is Pascal’s Restaurant which serves spaghetti and meatballs and flasks of bad Chianti. Primo, disgusted that Americans lack the sense of authentic Italian food hatches a plot to bring the finest dinner ever cooked –at the risk of losing his shirt. Big Night” is the struggle between “art and commerce” and the risk of staying true to yourself. 7 wins and 8 nominations, this film is a must see.

    I thought this was a really cool Retro flick about the '50s. The biggest kick I got was watching some of our famous celebrities in their much younger days.

    Un film meraviglioso! Il teatro era pieno zeppo -- e un buon idea arrivare in anticipo --forse anche 45 minuti -- per poter scegliere dei posti preferiti.
    Aspettiamo un' altra esperienza molto piacevole la settimana prossima, con "Il Gattopardo".

    Film was fun. Food at Cedar Lee Pub & Grill fell way short of the closed Jimmy O'Neill's Irish Tavern. We really miss you Jimmy!

    Who is going to be at dinner? I should be there around five and could hold seats for anyone arriving by 5:30 pm the announced start time. If you are coming later just be aware that Jimmy O'Neill's gets really crowded. Oh, and you should know that you will need to have purchased tickets in advance for both the dinner and movie. Nothing is sold at the door.
