Culinary Cinema Series: Life is Beautiful

Life is Beautiful

One of Italy’s most successful films will be featured at the next Culinary Cinema Series at Oceanside Museum of Art on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. Life is Beautiful, directed, written and featuring Roberto Benigni, is a tragi-comedy about the human spirit in the depths of a WWII concentration camp. Set in 1930s Italy, a carefree Jewish book keeper named Guido starts a fairy tale life by courting and marrying a lovely woman from a nearby city. Guido and his wife have a son and live happily together until the occupation of Italy by German forces. The evening begins with pre-film snacks, beer and wine at 6:00 p.m. After the film guests will enjoy a variety of Italian inspired food in a casual cocktail-party setting. Reservations are $39 or $29 for OMA members and include the film, entrance to five exhibitions, light pre-film snacks, delicious cuisine, and all inclusive beer and wine, and desserts. Call 760.435.3721 for reservations.
