The little reception after the movie was a nice surprise as well. Plus, being at that event allowed us to meet a couple of new friends who hail from Belgium and France (great for future french practice!). Thank you for organizing.

    My wife and I came to the event and had a wonderful time! The movie was better than expected and the other patrons were very friendly. My only suggestion would be some way of identifying the great wine and cheese you served. Merci.
