THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT - June 29th - Restaurant partener: Bounce & Hunge Lounge
This July the CAPITOL SELECTS will showcase four classic films by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Each film is celebrating a milestone anniversary this year as it returns to the big screen.
SUSPICION (75th Anniversary) (July 1st – 7th) – Cary Grant and Best Actress Oscar-winner Joan Fontaine star in this classic thriller about a wife who becomes increasingly concerned that her husband may be a killer.
THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (60th Anniversary) (July 8th – 14th) – James Stewart and Doris Day star as a vacationing couple who find themselves mixed up in international intrigue after their son is kidnapped in Morocco.
TORN CURTAIN (50th Anniversary) (July 15th – 21st) – Paul Newman stars as a famous scientist whose assistant (Julie Andrews) fears he may be defecting to East Germany. However, things aren’t what they seem in this Cold War era thriller.
FAMILY PLOT (40th Anniversary) (July 23rd – 28th) Hitchcock’s final film is also one of his most lighthearted. A wealthy old woman hires a con man (Bruce Dern) and a phony psychic (Barbara Harris) to find her long-lost nephew in this comedic thriller.
Movies traditionally only engage the senses of sight and sound. Now Shaker Square Cinemas (13116 Shaker Square, Cleveland) and Fire Food and Drink (13220 Shaker Square, Cleveland) are partnering to bring an additional sense to the cinematic table as audiences will get to “taste” the movies too.
Attendees of the SHAKER SQUARE FILM AND FLAVOR SERIES will see a classic movie on the big screen at the historic Shaker Square Cinemas preceded by an incredible meal, inspired by film’s location, at Fire Food and Drink.
The first film in the series will be Steven Spielberg’s classic thriller, JAWS, on Monday, June 27th.

New England Fish Chowder (lingcod, clams, marlin, oyster crackers and house made bacon)
Cornbread and Whipped Butter
Wood Grilled Chuck Sliders (local new creation farms beef, sesame seed bun, garden tomatoes, iceberg, cheddar cheese and dill potato salad)
Strawberry Pie (crumb crust, rhubarb gelatin, toasted meringue and vanilla custard)
Note: a vegan dinner option will be available with advance request
Following dinner, JAWS will be screened at 7:30 PM at Shaker Square Cinemas. Patrons who attend the dinner will receive VIP seating at the showing.
Tickets for the dinner and movie package are $36 (+tax and gratuity) and require advance reservations. Reservations for the dinner and movie must be made in advance at firefoodanddrink.com.
A limited number of tickets to see the film only will be available at the Shaker Square Cinemas box office for $6. No online ticket sales for film only tickets.
