Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Signature Cocktail: “The Stoli Grail”

History is turned on its comic head when, in 10th century England, King Arthur travels the countryside to find knights who will join him at the Round Table in Camelot. Arthur and his knights are then inspired by God to quest together for the Holy Grail. Hilarity ensues along the way as our heroes encounter a damsel in distress, a Soothsayer and the Knights of Ni.

Signature Cocktail: “Tequilla Sunrise”

Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon play Thelma and Louise, two working-class friends who plan a quiet weekend getaway from the men in their lives. Their road trip takes an unexpected turn, and their weekend getaway turns into a dramatic attempt to outrun the law. Add in a young Brad Pitt, and you’ve got an adventure for the ages.
Signature Cocktail: “Coffee with a kick!”
June 1, Rated R
Peter Gibbons is computer programmer who, at the ripe old age of 28, is having a mid-life crisis. Unable to endure another moment of the mind-numbing routine and petty annoyances that assault him day after day, Peter and some equally frustrated colleagues hatch a plot which could lead to a very lucrative and early retirement.
Signature Cocktail: “Kahlua Milkshakes”
June 8, Rated R
The lives of two mob hitmen, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption. Quentin Tarantino at his best!
