Our monthly gastronomic feature followed by a meal in the IFI Café Bar.
December’s pairing of a new release and a festival main course menu will be Frank Capra’s evergreen classic It’s A Wonderful Life(which opens on December 14th).
James Stewart plays everyman George Bailey, whose selfless nature has resulted in his spending his whole life in hometown Bedford Falls. When local despot Mr. Potter seizes an opportunity to ruin George, and thus consolidate his own control over the town, George finds himself considering drastic action. However, Angel (Second Class) Clarence Odbody intervenes and shows George what life in Bedford Falls would have been like had he never been born.
The menu for this month will include a choice of: Roulade of Turkey and Ham and Brussel Sprouts, White Wine Cream and Chestnuts; Fillet of Seabass with Squid Ink Risotto; and Gnocchi with Butternut Squash and Cranberries.
Tickets: €20.00, free list suspended.
