The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Yonkers will be hosting a unique and fun event on Monday October 26, 2015. Just in time for Halloween, the Cinema will host Victoria Price the daughter of Vincent Price for a special presentation of the Vincent Price classic film, “The Abominable Dr. Phibes.” The film is a tale of love, madness and revenge with Vincent Price starting as Dr. Phibes. It is considered by some to be one of Price’s best roles. Interesting enough he does not utter a single word on screen. It is sure to put you in the Halloween spirit.
What I did not know was that Vincent Price and his wife were lovers of fine food and 50 years ago in 1965 published a cookbook called A Treasury of Great Recipes. The volume includes recipes that were collected by Vincent Price and his wife Mary from various restaurants around the world. The book is a favorite of foodies and has inspired numerous chefs and fans worldwide.
To celebrate the release of the 50th Anniversary of the publication of A Treasury of Great Recipes, Victoria Price will be teaming up with Alamo Drafthouse for a night of film, fun and food. Ms. Price will also be sharing stories of her family legacy with the audience.
The Menu is as follows:
1. Soupe de L’Oignon
2. Chicken Salad and Dutch style Asparagus
3. Petite Crouque Monsieur
4. Stuffed Frankfurters and Boston Baked Beans
5. Pot de Creme Chocolat
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is located in Yonkers and was founded in Austin Texas in 1997. It now has 19 locations nationwide and gives theatre goers the unique opportunity to watch first run and classic movies and at the same time enjoy dinner and drinks.
This really sounds like a fun and unique cinema experience and just in time for Halloween!!
