Fans of Film and Food: A Vincent Price classic at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema celebrates the actor and the 50th Anniversary of his Cookbook


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

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.
