It will come as no surprise that we like movies that are about food, especially when they have a great cast and positive reviews. We are excited that Chef is opening in Columbus on Friday and will be showing at the Gateway Film Center for two weeks. We have two movie tickets to give away and you can choose which day and showtime you would like to go to. On opening night Friday May 23rd, there will be food trucks at South Campus Gateway including Ajumama, Red Snapper and Short North Bagel Deli to get you in the spirit. Friday showtimes are 5.40pm and 8.10pm and the food trucks will be in action from 5pm.
Written by, directed by, produced by and starring Jon Favreau – Chef features an all-star cast including Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Robert Downey Jr. and young actor Emjay Anthony. When Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what’s next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son (Emjay Anthony) to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen — and zest for life and love. You can watch the trailer here.
