FILM ON SUSHI MASTER TO PLAY IN GLOUCESTER THIS WEEKEND
Special screening Sunday to benefit Cape Ann’s food pantry, The Open Door
Gloucester, MA – The Cape Ann Community Cinema at 21 Main Street in Gloucester continues its monthly “Dinner And A Movie” series this Sunday, April 8 at 5:00 p.m. with a special benefit screening of the acclaimed documentary, Jiro Dreams Of Sushi.
The film tells the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant auspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3-star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar. At the heart of this story is Jiro’s relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro’s legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his loving father’s shadow.
The film is rated PG, for mild thematic elements and brief smoking. Tickets for this one-night-only event are $9.50 adults, $8.00 for students & seniors (60+) and $6.50 for Cinema Members, available at the Cinema or online at www.CapeAnnCinema.com. Sushi from Latitude 43 will be available for purchase for prices ranging from $10 to $16, and will be served during intermission at around 6:00pm.
The Cape Ann Community Cinema will donate a portion of every ticket and sushi sale to Cape Ann’s food pantry, The Open Door (www.FoodPantry.org).
