Eat The Film

Eat The Film is an iconic quarterly film and food event created by The Roxy & CoCo At The Roxy - unique not just within Wellington, but the entire Antipodean region. Designed to showcase the incredibly creative and ever changing menu of our playful, fine dining establishment CoCo At The Roxy, Eat The Film provides film and food fans with a cult classic film and delicious seasonal and thematic dishes designed to arrive in-theatre, perfectly timed to specific scenes. It's a truly collaborative labour of love for our talented team, showcasing the various strengths of our bar, restaurant and cinema operations talent, and an immersive sensorial experience for all attendees! Viewers receive a tasting selection from our current thematic menu, delivered in-house while they watch, along with a selection of sensational, bespoke cocktails, designed especially for the screening. It's THE film and food event of NZ's capital, and not to be missed!


Our Summer 2020 Eat The Film is Stand By Me on Sunday 26th January 6:00pm

Due to popular demand an extra session has been added on Monday 27th January 6:00pm

This summer, we invite you to EAT THE FILM!

Our next event is inspired by Stand By Me (1986). 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, paired with an incredible selection of drinks designed by our award winning bar team.  

Haven't seen Stand By Me? After learning that a stranger has been accidentally killed near their rural homes, four Oregon boys decide to go see the body. On the way, Gordie Lachance (Wil Wheaton), Vern Tessio (Jerry O'Connell), Chris Chambers (River Phoenix) and Teddy Duchamp (Corey Feldman) encounter a mean junk man and a marsh full of leeches, as they also learn more about one another and their very different home lives. Just a lark at first, the boys' adventure evolves into a defining event in their lives.  

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

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