ABOUT FRIES! THE MOVIE:

September 27, 7pm at the Cider Gallery Courtyard

  • Music by Nick Carswell at 7pm/ Movie at 7:30pm (running time: 84 minutes)
  • In the event of rain or inclement weather, this event will move inside the Cider Gallery and masks will be required.
  • HEALTH/SAFETY PROTOCOLS:
    – Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination status OR negative COVID test required at the door for patrons 12+

Live music by Nick Carswell sets the stage for an outdoor screening of the fresh-from-the-fryer documentary, Fries! The Movie. Film Society subscribers will get in to this event for FREE and a la carte tickets are just $10. You can even supersize your experience by adding yummy fries by Lawrence Beer Co. and a champagne taster (available by pre-order ONLY).

No other food bridges borders, languages, and tastes more than the humble but delicious fried potato. Taking the audience on a joyous and mouth-watering journey around the world, best-selling authors Malcolm Gladwell and Chrissy Teigen join an international cast of characters to better understand the globe’s obsession with the french fry with humor and reverence.

“Fries! The Movie unequivocally proves Gladwell’s assessment that the world would be a dark, miserable place without french fries.”
—Shayna Weingast, Tribeca Film Festival
