Eat The Film returns October 6th

This October, we invite you to EAT THE FILM!

Our next event is inspired by The Outsiders (1983). You'll be treated to an unique night of tantalizing treats, crafted by Coco at The Roxy's head chef, Nic Spicer. Each dish will match scenes or lines in the film and paired with an incredible selection of drinks designed by our award winning bar team.

Francis Coppola brings S.E Hinton’s 1967 novel to life using gold washed cinematography, film noir styled angles and editing, plus a stomping 60’s soundtrack! The Outsiders tells the story of the ongoing conflict between the Greasers and the Socs in rural Oklahoma. When Greasers Ponyboy (C. Thomas Howell) and Johnny (Ralph Macchio) get into a brawl that ends in the death of a Soc, the boys are forced to go into hiding. Soon Ponyboy and Johnny must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some Greasers try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends.

Whether you're a foodie or a film fan, this is the perfect night out!

All tickets are $75. Each ticket includes the screening, a bespoke array of cocktails and a filling selection of dishes inspired by the film.
