Have you seen the swanky movie theater complete with exposed brick walls and plush seats hidden inside the Wythe Hotel? Well, we’re taking it over. Join us for a screening of the all-time French classic, Amélie, on Thursday August 20. We’ll be joined by the folks at Fluent City, the experts in making learning language fun again. The evening will include a brief LGBTQ-inclusive French language lesson with Fluent City teachers, mingling at the bar, lots of free popcorn, and of course, a screening of the timeless Amélie. The bar will also be featuring some cocktails reimagined from the French film, bringing the movie to life in a whole new way. It's the perfect event to come solo to, or bring your fellow Francophile.

Amélie is a 2001 romantic comedy directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and is to this date the highest-grossing French-language film released in the United States ($33 million). Set in Montmartre, the film is a whimsical depiction of contemporary Parisian life. It tells the story of a shy waitress (Audrey Tautou) who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better, while struggling with her own isolation. Critically acclaimed and a major box-office success, Amélie won Best Film at the European Film Awards; four César Awards (including Best Film and Best Director), two BAFTA Awards (including Best Original Screenplay), and was nominated for five Academy Awards.
