The June Cinematheque theme? "The Joy of Cooking," a.k.a. films about people who love fine wine and cuisine, and the drama that ensues therein. Coming Wednesday, June 21, at 6 p.m.: "The Hundred-Foot Journey," starring Helen Mirren and produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey. Mirren plays Madame Mallory, who is taken aback when an Indian family opens a restaurant across the road from her Michelin-starred eatery in a small French village. As always, we will show the movie on the large screen in our community room, and hand out Free.Popcorn. Come join us!
