A New Digital Series from CAC!

As we all continue to adjust to our new and rapidly changing reality, we here at the Cinema Arts Centre are working to develop new ways to enjoy films as a getaway and keep you and our community, engaged with something extra special…a fun way to cook. Forks & Films!

Every Thursday, we will upload a free weekly episode that connects with a family-friendly film that you can download from various streaming services. Restaurateur, chef, and CAC trustee, Martin Butera will demonstrate tips and tricks for making dishes highlighted in the films while providing an interesting and often amusing background on what he is cooking.

Our host, Jacqueline Strayer, professor, film enthusiast, and CAC trustee, will share fun facts about each weekly film and invite you to share photos/videos of you making the food/watching the film on social media. Raffles and other contests will be held each week with lucky winners. She will showcase your stories, photos and videos in each subsequent episode.

Tune in to our Facebook or YouTube on April 30th at 6pm to view the the fourth episode!
