Moving pictures and artisanal pours are the perfect combination this Fall at ArcLight Cinemas in Bethesda, where it’s Lights, Camera, Cocktails!
The unique Fall movie and mixology program is already set to bring together fans of film and craft cocktails as it kicks off Wednesday, October 10 with the classic film, Smokey and the Bandit paired with drinks from the popular Hank’s Cocktail Bar.
The monthly screening series invites bartenders to create a unique, three-drink menu using their favorite film for inspiration. At each event, guests will enjoy a pre-screening cocktail in ArcLight’s modern-designed café bar. Complimentary popcorn and a second movie-inspired cocktail are available to enjoy while watching the featured film. And following the screening, guests are invited back to the café for a wrap party to discuss the film and savor their third cocktail. The series is sponsored by Grey Goose Vodka.
Lights, Camera, Cocktails Event Schedule:
For all dates, the event check-in and the pre-screening cocktail begins at 6:30 p.m. The film will start promptly at 7 p.m., and the wrap party immediately follows the end of each film.
